Hi everyone, I'm a new user and this is my first post.
I wanted to know if any of you guys could give some good advice on upgrading, im a gamer, and basically just want to make my computer better for games, i want better graphics, a higher frame rate, and faster loading times. I plan to upgrade my graphics card and ram sometime soon.
Ok, so right now I'm on a P4 3ghz processor, 1 gig of ram, and a crappy pci express graphics card, and my plan is to upgrade to 2 gig of ram, and then up to $500 on a new graphics card.
So a few questions on my plan.
1. Is 2 gig of ram going to be a significant improvement over 1 gig? or should i go for more?
2. What graphics card are the best with a $500 limit?
3. Finally, is my processor going to hold me back on getting a big improvement in my computers performance?
thanks for the help guys, i appriciate ur replies, the amount is in US dollars by the way.
yea i thought the processor i have would drain a bit of performance, but if i have $500 to spend on a graphics card, i kinda thought id be better getting a top graphics card and keeping my processor. Than adding more money to my budget to get a new core processor and a mid range graphics card... and wouldnt i get better performance my way, or would i not?
