Hi, I'm new to this. I've recently decided to switch to PC gaming and I want my computer to be able to run current games smoothly, such as COD ghosts.
I'm not sure what's important but, speccy:
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 215
RAM: 4GB DDR2 400MHz
Mobo: dell AM2 AMD
Graphics: 1024MB NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT, DELL ST2010 (1600x900@60Hz)
HD: 466GB Seagate ST3500418AS ATA Device (SATA)
I wanna upgrade the motherboard because I have 2 4GB ddr3 ram. Can you suggest what motherboard to get and if I need to upgrade anything else. As for price, whatever the minimum is to run without problems. Let me know if you need anymore info.
You'll be pretty much building a new machine. You can keep the hard drive, though you will need to reinstall windows. You can keep the optical drive and case, and possibly the PSU. what is the make/model of your power supply?
