i think i have
-GPU AMD X something
-P4 @3.4 Ghz
-MSI Mobo with 2GB RAM (dont know exacts)
-Windows XP PRO SP3
-thermaltake PSU at about 430 watts max? (not sure)
-250GB HDD


pretty much all i know off the top of my head. got to wait till tomorrow to give more exact specs.
also i got this system from a thrift that gives me their computer stuff. i bought my own case and moved in the parts from that one and hotswapped it with a drive without a password.

how i will use this PC? probs MC and some free games like War Inc Battlezone and Battlefield Play4free and some others. and school.

as for monitor resolution i hook it up to my projector every once in awhile, dont know res on my main monitor though.


sorry for the bad details, am not near my computer. and i cant realy check specs till tomorrow sometime, but i hope this info helps some.

also yes im young and have few ways to get money.

P4 @ 3.2 Ghz
XP Pro SP3 (except it sais counterfit windows?)
Thermaltake 430 Wat PSU
2GB DDR2 RAM
the GPU Slot is PCI-E X16 (most likely 1.0 but i dont mind getting lower grade work out of GPU)
MOBO is MSI (cant seem to find the model number) it supports RAID. live update 2 BIOS.

this stuff is pretty old yes. i dont mind getting a 2.0 in a 1.0 slot if it is.

im not that sure but i think the gt630 will be bottlenecked by your cpu. i suggest to get a new board and a new cpu, the pentium g2010 would be a great partner for the gt630 for mild gaming.

bottleneck?? im sorry but im kinda new to this PC stuff. started about 6-10 months ago.
and yes im planning on upgrading mobo and cpu, but after the GPU. (im going slow and steady on this build) i dont realy have 60 spendable right now actiualy, cause id need to get the money. so im just getting an idea through this.then after GPU upgrade i might buy an AMD A4 or Pentiuum. whatevers the cheaper combo....

Bottleneck is where one of your component is preventing another from showing its full potential, it usually happens when an old component is paired with a new one.. in your case, your cpu will hold back the gt630 from getting its max performance..

hope this helps..

yep, actually ignore the bottleneck until you get a new mobo and cpu.. games might be playable except for those are cpu intesive.. go for the gpu, and save for the mobo and cpu :D

HEY GUYS!!!!! GREAT NEWS!!!!!! i have 400 budget
i found a $150 deal on Amazon for windows 7 OS and a 1TB 7200 RPM HDD. so minus that (its actiualy $148.99)

and now the amazing factors that need upgrading, the Mobo, RAM, CPU, GPU.
my CPU i would love a quad core but wont mind a dual because im looking at music playing and music production to. (less then a hundred please if available or give me a CPU and Mobo Combo for less then $175 like on micro center or something.)
RAM i want 4GB or up. hopefully 8GB. (please about $60 limit or $70 limit only if its 8GB)
Mobo i dont care, just something that is prefferably low power and is ATX case. (i will spend $75 hopefully MAX on Mobo if its not Mobo and CPU COmbo)


i already have
'case Raidmax Helios-- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=11-156-...
UPDATE: the case isnt the exact on shown. this is the exact case i bought. for some reason newegg has different versions of this case and sends them differently. love my case though... i got the Super Helios version i think. what i dont like is that i didnt get enough drive clamps.
case fans (in case, specific needed look at case)
Combo Drive. (do i need to be specific??)
PSU-------KEEP IN MIND MY PSU IS ONLY 430 WATT MAX!!! (will deffinatley upgrade on spare money if possible)

thanks so much for your input thus far, and all the input you may give so on.

possibly. mobo looks nice and is great but it doesnt look like enough slots. i might not SLI. and for the GPU to. CPU im not sure... what about FX? the 6 core with some other good stuff? the RAM is a good module though. thanks. but am still looking for what i need.

i like it.
but nvidia and im looking at a low end GPU by NVIDA
RAM nice little moduale.
Mobo great pricing.
CPU, im looking for a real budget AMD Quad possibly.
thanks for that. may use some of those parts someday.

thanks dude, but he said that he is willing to raise his budget, its better for him to get a new one, those are great deals, I suggest the FSP Raider 550w or the FSP Hexa 500w, thats the cheapest power supply i can recommend for that card, but i you are willing to add more, then go for the Seasonic S12II 520w, it'll be worth it. :D

thats nice pricetag geek but hes gonna need a new powersupply for that card.



thanks dude, but he said that he is willing to raise his budget, its better for him to get a new one, those are great deals, I suggest the FSP Raider 550w or the FSP Hexa 500w, thats the cheapest power supply i can recommend for that card, but i you are willing to add more, then go for the Seasonic S12II 520w, it'll be worth it. :D 

never said i was going to buy those parts for this build. im all out NVIDIA. and the CPU hasnt enough cores. i will want a quad core because i will probs be playing music and web surfing or playing minecraft. with what i got now i can barely surf the web and play music. i want to get a quad to ensure music abilities and to make music.

HEY GUYS!!!!! GREAT NEWS!!!!!! i have 400 budget
i found a $150 deal on Amazon for windows 7 OS and a 1TB 7200 RPM HDD. so minus that (its actiualy $148.99)

and now the amazing factors that need upgrading, the Mobo, RAM, CPU, GPU.
my CPU i would love a quad core but wont mind a dual because im looking at music playing and music production to. (less then a hundred please if available or give me a CPU and Mobo Combo for less then $175 like on micro center or something.)
RAM i want 4GB or up. hopefully 8GB. (please about $60 limit or $70 limit only if its 8GB)
Mobo i dont care, just something that is prefferably low power and is ATX case. (i will spend $75 hopefully MAX on Mobo if its not Mobo and CPU COmbo)


i already have
'case Raidmax Helios-- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=11-156-...
UPDATE: the case isnt the exact on shown. this is the exact case i bought. for some reason newegg has different versions of this case and sends them differently. love my case though... i got the Super Helios version i think. what i dont like is that i didnt get enough drive clamps.
case fans (in case, specific needed look at case)
Combo Drive. (do i need to be specific??)
PSU-------KEEP IN MIND MY PSU IS ONLY 430 WATT MAX!!! (will deffinatley upgrade on spare money if possible)

thanks so much for your input thus far, and all the input you may give so on.


have you paid for the gpu already? how much is your total budget now for the GPU/CPU/Ram?MOBO.


no i never bought any GPU yet. total budget for the good stuff is about 250. nothing over 251 unless its shipping.


bro here's the best I could get for your budget

so ice i am looking for a quad core CPU (around $75, deffinately under a hundred for a quad. is 6 core can accept up to $120)
GPU NVIDIA. doesnt matter which one. (bellow $80? if i like it a lot wont mind spending more)
Mobo cheapest possible ATX. if its m-ATX i need at the least 2 PCI. PCI-E x1 i dont care, and for PCI-E X16 1 it dont matter. ima probs fit one GPU in it.
RAM, cheapest 1x4gb by a good compony. not kingston. preferably g-skill or whoever. (MAX is $55 not including shipping.)

can raise my budget to 300 if nescesary and buy a better PSU.

will do. looking up all the parts on different websight to find cheapest price. so far micro center had 1 or 2 parts and more money for the part. the CPU was same price but you dont get anything special
will keep up to date
