Hey forum.

 

I have a really old PC which was build in 2009. I'm considering to update it if it's worth it. During the year I'll be building an up to date PC, but for the time being

I'd like to upgrade some specs which would help the performance of this current old build. I mainly use it for some graphic designing, I don't game at all. Below I have attached

the specs.

 

Thank you.

Just add an SSD if you don't have one already and if you use GPU acceleration get the best GPU you can find. CPU upgrades will be more tricky and need to be investigated. Are your programs hard on memory ?

Hi there.

 

My motherboard is really old, is it possible to install SSD on such an old motherboard? I don't think there is a slot for it. I'm not a PC expert at all, that's why I'm asking.

Yes my Programs are on a HDD.  How about RAM, would I need new RAM Sticks?

HI Herman.

 

So I'll get a new CPU which is faster than the current one as you suggested. And once I get a SATA SSD,  I assume I have to reinstall all the software again on that SDD with the operating windows 10 again?

Sell your existing cpu Mobo and ram and upgrade your platform. You can sell it for around $50.

 

Something like a 1600af will be great for you. Add in a cheap b450 board like ASRock b450 pro4 or msi b450 pro vdh max. Add in 16gb 8*2 3000-3200 mhz ram kit. Also, add in a cheap 250gb boot SSD.
