check out Newegg for prices tho and I would consider getting a Athlon 64 3200+ instead of the 3000+. It is only alittle bit more and probly worth it. Also make sure you get a skt.939 mobo and CPU. U also don't need the best mobo either. Don't get an ASUS one just cause of the name. They are basically all the same. Make sure it has an AGP slot, atleast 4 PCI slots and 4 dual channel DIMM slots
I'm not super computer savvy but I have a amd motherboard with a nforce 2 chipset, a xp 2200+ cpu, 768mb ram, and a geforce titanium 4200 (I think) video card.
I need to upgrade my computer, it runs really slow and I play some up to date games, this isn't cutting it.
First off, should I upgrade everything? I was thinking of going with a new motherboard with a nforce 4 chipset, 64 3000+ processor, adding a gig of ram and upgrading to a 6600 gt video card. This won't be cheap, but I was wondering, is there a way to maybe take the price down a notch without sacrificing too much performance? Any suggestions? Or if you know of a place where I can get these compontents cheap (I know about price watch) or something?
any advice/help/suggestions is appreciated
