whoever is a follower of the components forum knows im looking to build a pc fairly soon.
so I'm looking at a budget of max 150 bucks for a graphics card. may be able to up it to 180, depending on the setup i might use.
currently I have a Core 2 Duo E6850 (powerful enough cpu for me, I play GTA IV EFLC with decent frame rates. What I would need to do to keep this platform is upgrade to a new graphics card and get 4gb ram (50 bucks) and get a new hdd (60 bucks)
looking to expand my system to get a smooth framerate on ultra at 1440x900. Currently I have a Radeon HD 6450. I need an upgrade.
So here's two options. welcome to different opinions. Budget 250.
Keep the E6850 Upgrade to 4gb ddr2 800 - 50 Get a Hyper 212 Plus - 30 Get a 1tb hdd - 60 Get a HD 7770/GTX 650 ti - 105
Get a G3220 - 60 Get a new mobo - 45 Get 8gb ddr3 - 72 get a 1tb hdd - 60
