  • Need advice on upgrading

    Alright, so my birthdays coming up (Oct 2) and I need to ask for something... so I figure I could always upgrade my computer. Anyway here are the current specs:

    Microsoft XP
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E4500 @ 2.2 GHz
    Memory: 2 GB of RAM
    Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT
    Motherboard: MSI P6N SLI
    Power: Antec 430 watts
    (if i left out something just let me know)

    So I just want an upgrade, nothing to expensive (maybe 300-500$ if that's reasonable... probably can go higher). Want to be able to play games like CoD5 with high frames and high graphics.

    He who believes he knows the ending of things before they begin is either a very wise person or an idiot. Regardless, he is unhappy for he hast drove a knife into the heart of wonder. -Osten Ard

    If you can find one in stock somewheres.

    Should have enough money left over to buy a new PSU as well. Your vid card is really all that's lacking in that system.

      Id say get a new processor (q550) a new graphics card (4890, good price in stock and should last for quite some time) and a new power supply to run all these things (looks very good but I am no PSU expert) Just wait for Bamboo to have a look at this thread, hes the expert :)

        A third gig of RAM is missing, and RAM is cheap!

        Just because everyone does something does not mean that it is right to do.
