    Is this computer dual core

    Hi guys I'm buying a new computer and found this emachine one here

    this the one that was on bestbuy http://www.emachines.com/products/pr...prod=ET1831-07

    I have a couple questions about it is the processor dual core or single and also would I be able to upgrade stuff like the video card and psu?

    also I was looking at this one here to:

    http://www.computertrends.com/produc...&categoryid=27

    The second ones better but I would have to buy a seperate moniter which one do you guys think would be a better deal. thanks

    Hi welcome to the forums I added a new link to the computer at best buy and to make a new thread if your in the community cafe section theres a new thread button close to the top of the page.


    edit:

    also it has a 250 watt powersupply so what graphics cards could it handle without upgrading the powersupply

    Probably could handle integrated card. Most newer video cards want 400W+ PSUs.

    But yah, it's a dual core, but not a very good machine (except that it's cheap).

    You could probably get a better one for around the same price.
