View Full Version : [ubuntu] HDD, memory and graphics card upgrade

November 12th, 2011, 01:09 AM
Hi All,

I recently installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my desktop. I got this old, probably 3 years old, desktop from one of my friend. It has 80GB hard drive and 1.5GB ram.

I would like to upgrade this to atleast 1TB hard drive and would like add more RAM and Graphics card with HDMI so that I can use this as sort of HTPC to stream online movies, videos and songs on my LCD TV.

How can I find out what is the maximum hard drive, maximum memory and what kind of graphics card i can add?

What information i need like mother board spcs or anything like that?

Thanks in advance.
