How can I build these two PC's into one?
So I have a Gateway SX2110G-UW318, with AMD E1-1200, AMD Radeon HD 7310, a 500 GB HD, 4GB DDR3 MEMORY, and Windows 8 pulling all the strings. Now, I also have a Dell Optiplex GX520 - with a Celeron D 2.4 GHz, 64 bit, 50GB HD, 533Mhz, and Windows XP pulling "some" strings. The Gateway is blue screened from a quick power failure, and the Dell's fan speed is sporadic no matter how many adjustments i make. It just keeps getting louder and louder as the tasks become more involved. Especially if I'm playing a video.
My thought was to try and use the graphics card from the GW, in the Dell, as I had heard that replacing this would quiet down the noise (something to do with the stock card needing too much power for the configuration). Please excuse my lack of technical jargon and such, I am quite new to all of this. I am wondering what you think I should do (this is a somewhat temp situation, I will get all new gear in less than a year)?
Thank you for your time! C Alan
Is this a good question?
