If it's 10 years old, it is really time to upgrade. It won't be easy finding parts for upgrade in computer shops. Most of them are already obsolete or will be expensive.

being not so computer genious at all...need to have more accurate info about computer upgrading...what things or hardware should i upgrade and what is the best one...and if i want to do it alone to save a penny which is quite expensive here on my location for an expert to do it...i'll be needing some assistance i guess to do the upgrade process...hehehe...if its not so complicated for my not so talented brain for all of this...LOL

at least some hints to do it alone...

You could get a system with an Intel i5 CPU, if you don't plays games or do graphic designing, get integrated graphics. I usually prefer building my own desktop, but if it were a laptop, I would choose dell because of the customization options I get by ordering through online.

I would say that my system is average.

thanks once again Doc...

well actually or to tell you frankly i'm not that guy who has such knowledge about all of this or about computer...still learning by reading or researching around internet...

actually since that i said that my table computer (not laptop) is already old i guess...but actually i can still use it on a normal and basic work...but i really want to put it already in rest means i might buy a new one...the problem is if i buy a new one...of course just like the other guy who want also a better one...right? like the one on my mind that i can use it later maybe for games...or anything...something better but not the best one...which are on the market nowadays...like the one you said that you are having an average one...

the problem is i'm having trouble choosing the better one or say almost the best one on the market this days....

like i said i might want to have the system that i can use maybe later for games if i want to or better system that i might use also for music and movies...it might be good maybe also if i can have some things that modern and best gadget....or anything on the system that i dont have on this old system...

like i said i really dont know all about this...or something bothering me which one to choose and buy out there...

thanks and best regards

Honored

If you're gonna use it for games, you will need a dedicated graphics card. You can check Dell's website out, it provides customization options. Typically, the studio desktops will be good enough.

If you need recommendations, just post here.
