I added a 2t harddrive last year and it works great. I have been going on to second life and have problems with freezing and a slow fps. I never crash I have a very fast internet. I read a post from a guy that upgraded his power supply and graphics card but that was 5 years ago. Can I get an upgraded answer for this.
thank you, Jogan516

Maybe this serial is better option for your motherboard, does not expect great performance with respect to the bus speed of the PCI port.

My apologies for adding to this:
Your PC is from 2009 so you cannot use UEFI (Nvidia GTX 700, 900 1000 model) graphics cards.
The Corsair cx 750 may butt up against the 3.5 inch drive bays where your DVD drive is located such that it would not be possible to plug modular power cables into the power supply.

The cx750 is about six inches.
Check clearance in tower. You need cable and connector clearance also. You may need about eight or nine inches from end of cx750 to 3.5 inch drive bays to plug in and route cables in tower.
You cannot use Nvidia UEFI graphics so is cx750 good investment?

Thank you again, I stopped the order in shipping and it will be returned for refund. I oredered the corsair VX550. Do you thing that is the best video card I can use on this machine. I was thinking of getting a new processor also, do you have a sugestion. I was looking at a AMD Phenom ii x4 965 for a M3 socket, but they were saying you could use the AMD FX-4130 for it, but it is M3+??

I ended up purchasing a AMD Phenom IIx4 965 processor for 69.95, a corsair power supply 550w for 65.00 and a used Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 Graphix card for 75.00. Thank you, it all works perfectly now. I get 70 and more frames per second sometimes and when the Graphix gets really busy down to 10 FPS. Thank you for the advice, I spent 209.95 dollars and I'm set for quite a while.
