I wouldn't look at upgrading anything until those voltages are confirmed, they look very suspect. Download Speccy as linked in my signature, run it and click on the Motherboard tab on the left. Take a screenshot and attach it to your next post.

I`d get these

RipjawsX - F3-10666CL7D-8GBXH - G.SKILL DDR3 Memory

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL7D-8GBXH - Newegg.com

A video card and memory have nothing to do with each other, don`t worry about that. But you really should install a video card.

If you`re not doing anything super serious with it, a 4 GB 960 will be just fine. (Do not get a 2 GB card)

EVGA - Products - EVGA GeForce GTX 960 4GB SSC GAMING ACX 2.0+ - 04G-P4-3967-KR

MSI USA - Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more


Upgrade the cpu to the fastest possible you can afford and the motherboard supports. (AMD experts can help you with that)


We need a link that will tell us possible upgrades for this machine, not a website that shows current specs, that`s no help here at all.

Everything I am finding says the e-300 amd is a socket FT1 (BGA) and that it is typically in laptops. That socket/cpu combination is soldered into the mobo. Double check in device manager or computer properties what you truly have. If you have the specs for the mobo that should have the socket type and cpu model.

If you couldn`t upgrade the cpu, that would suck, 1.3 GHz is slowwwwwwww

That is killing it.

e-machines are budget boxes, one never knows what they'll do to sell a box rather than an upgrade component
Meanwhile, he needs to crack the book or the case and help a little more. I'm just Google surfing

Those voltages are very out of specs.

They were reported probably by some bogus program, the only way to check true voltages is in the bios, I would ignore what he found in post #1, probly not even close to actual.

Kidlonet, PLEASE fill in your specs, everything you put in your post is useless except the name of the PC.

If this is indeed a laptop, then just go get 2 4GB PNY sticks of 1333 MHz at your local Bestbuy for $40

So ignore possible dodgy voltages on what is probably a very low end PSU and throw in the fastest processor possible and a GTX 960?
