I bought my PC about a year ago and i feel as if its time to upgrade. Basically im wondering what component i should upgrade to achieve the most noticable increase in performance. My specs atm: AMD x2 4400+ 2 Gigs ram Asus sli-deluxe mobo ATI x1900xt 512mb detailed specs : http://img250.imageshack.us/img250/976/specskl6.jpg Im looking for better performance in gaming and of course, lower frame rates! thanks for any help More about : upgrade advice g-paw August 29, 2007 9:17:20 PM The video card would be the only thing I think would make sense. This is a good place to start http://www.tomshardware.com/2007/08/06/the_best_gaming_... If your looking at upgrading the CPU/mobo, you'll also need different RAM, DDR2, the following is about $475. If your gaming, you'd probably be better off putting the money into a video card. For around $375 you can get an 8600GTS. http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E1681... http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E1681... http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E1682...
