I have an old system that is working well and cannot bring myself to throw it away until it use is no longer feasible. My children play videos and games on it. The integrated video is Radeon HD 4250. Is it worth putting in a gpu to extend the life or would it cost the same to replace the motherboard?. I am not sure what the cpu is as I have it apart to clean at this time. The memory is G.skill DDR3 1333 PC3 4GBx2. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the computer. It runs win 7 64 bit without issue.
Appreciate any thoughts and suggestion if think to replace it.
There's a program called Speccy which tells you everything about your computer, except the power supply, https://www.ccleaner.com/speccy but sure, it's worth extending the life. I wouldn't recommend a new card given the current price issues, but a used one, such as a 260X, is an inexpensive upgrade that'd increase its power greatly.
