Upgraded my M1730 XPS


Jan 16, 2013
I own an old M1730 XPS dell with windows vista(i do not mind that it is a vista, so don't tell me to upgrade to win7). I am a college student and i do fool around and play video games one the computer. These days with all the new 2012-2013 games i can hardly run then on the lowest settings and resolution. I love this computer almost as much as my trust mac, what kind of processor, video card, ram, and hard drive would be recommend for this machine in order to run newer games with ease.
Below i will post the specs of the computer that it currently has.
