    Is anyone able to assist here.

    My system is slow and i want to get it up to spec??.

    Compaq Presario SR5045AN
    running 2 gb Ramm,
    Integrated Nvidia Geforce 8150se
    AMD Athalon 64 Processor 3800+

    I would like to upgrade or install a graphics card as i believe this will help with faster processing for CS3?

    Assistance - Iam on a budget and not sure how it is done??

    Hmm, even on a budget you would be better off upgrading PC all together.

    I build all my PC's through MSY, my last one cost me $1490 wih specs out performing those of 3k+ hp's etc.

    Worth a look into, they also offer "upgrade" packages.

    Keep the monitor, keyboard and mouse and for a couple of hundred dollars pick up a complete new reconditioned PC that will run rings around what you have at the moment.

    Sites like Zazz or Deal of the Day regularly have reconditioned ex corporate systems with an OS (Linux or Windows) for under $200.00.
