    Go to this website and put your model and model number it will give you all the possible updates for your PC.


    Personally I wouldn't mess with e-machine. It always gave mew a problem in past. I do fix computers for living and e-machines are the worst and hard to upgrade since they usually don't give a good support for their products.

    But if you insist go to website above and check if there are any upgrades available.

    relies upon on what you want to play, despite the indisputable fact that it will be difficult to make it a sturdy gaming pc. the sturdy information is that it has a pci-e x16 slot, so that you'll be able to upload a video card. the undesirable information is that the PSU is in straight forward words 250W, so an pretty useful video card isn't accessible, inspite of the actuality that you may want to correctly be able to improve the PSU. as an party, fairly a lot any card that calls for exterior means is out. something like a radeon 4670 or geforce 9600 gt is devoid of doubt one among the finest you are able to do or perhaps that isn't any longer a constructive ingredient with this kind of weak PSU. you likely recognize this already, yet replacing the motherboard and PSU in a pre-equipped pc frequently isn't accessible, the parts are often custom-equipped for the OEM, and are not regularly happening ATX or mATX parts. because there are in straight forward words 2 RAM slots, the pc likely maxes out at 4gb. the geforce 7050 chipset in the motherboard is socket 775 and would (curiously) take any center 2 processor. Celerons commonly suck, so i might want to attempt to modify it. heck, that CPU isn't even a twin-center. counting on your funds, i might want to point a pentium e6300, a pentium e6700, or a center 2 e8400.
