  1. Hey I got an older computer that I want to see if I can't make a little better without having to buy a new computer for another year or half year...I got a Dell Inspiron 531 a few years back, put some extra ram in it and added a shitty graphics card. Point is, it was fine for games when I got it. But now its lacking the power to run most new games(Big Suprise!!...not really) Anyways, being a dell with their annoying power supplies it's a pain to change them for a better graphics card, would it be worth it to get new processor to boost the computers power a bit. If so..Could you make some recommendations on which to buy.

    Here is some of the computer specs right now, let me know what you think
