I would like to upgrade my old PC with these features: Cpu Pentium G630 2.70 ghz, Ram 4.00 GB DDR3 @ 532 Mhz, Foxconn 2ABF motherboard, Intel Hd graphics card. However I would like to keep the Windows 10 home 64 bit operating system with the installed programs, how could I do?

You would be better to just get a whole new pc, whats your budget?

  1. Are you working with a budget for this upgrade?
  2. What do you hope to be able to do with an upgrade of this PC?
  3. Was this a custom-built PC or was it obtained from a popular PC brand? What kind of case/form factor are you working with?

If you're willing to keep the motherboard, you can just upgrade the CPU, RAM and GPU. As a start, found your motherboard specifications here. Looks like your maximum supported CPU is Sandy Bridge CPUs, but I've also found posts elsewhere saying that a BIOS update can allow for Ivy Bridge CPUs.

Was this an OEM license or full retail/upgrade license? If you still have the license key you should be able to reuse it after activation. However, with all the hardware upgrades you plan to do I'm not entirely sure the Windows activation will be a straightforward process. Might need to do a call-in activation if prompted.

One thousand Euro.


 

With that kind of budget, just buy a new system or build another.

 

Your current system is based on very old hardware with limited performance. You should be able to get more modern hardware with that budget for an entirely new system.

the pc is a pre-assembled hp, my goal is to change the motherboard and the other components but I don't know which components to choose.
