Inexpensive and worthwhile upgrade for an old PC
February 6, 2019
I have an older tower PC circa 2008 that I decided recently to take on as a project to see if I could revive. After performing a clean OS install, as well as finding workable PCI & PCI-E sound, video, usb, and ethernet cards & drivers to install, I was well on my way. The last step I could think of to further enhance performance was to replace the old 320 GB HDD with a new SSD. I was quite pleased to see that I could get the 480 GB one was on sale for less than $50 on lightning deal. In spite of some initial difficulty cloning the HDD, as it took me 3 tries, I am now rocking and rolling having spent less than $100 on all PC components. Hoping the motherboard holds out for a few years longer, as I now have a pretty snappy 32 bit windows 10 home PC with 3 GB ram running as a Plex server, Office 360, working Skype with webcam, & blu ray drive. Still find my $119 Samsung model 3 Chromebook more useful and practical, but it's nice to have my media server up and running well again.
