advice on upgrade



New Member
I don't even know where to start. We have a 486, no cd-rom, a dot matrix printer...
We want to upgrade, get a cd-rom drive, a printer, and a scanner. We do lots of word processing, internet RP games. I would like to be able to scan photos into a family tree program I already use. We have SoundBlaster 16. Any advice on speed, brands, options would be appreciated.

First of all how much money can be spent? You have a lot of upgrade options and you don't have to spend a lot of money the prices of components aren't to bad these days. You have the option of trying to upgrade the computer that you are currently using or using some of the parts from the 486 to build a new system. That's only two options there are tons more!!! Give me an e-mail on your limitations and I'll help you in any way that I can.
