QUESTION: Which components are worth saving from my current setup, if any? Can I get a decent gaming computer (to play oblivion) with what I have and $500 bucks? I would appreciate specific brand name component suggestions. I want to go budget with ability to upgrade sigfinificantly.
The following is my current build. The damn thing crashes all the time, i think a bad motherboard. I've brought it to multiple places and they can't figure out why. They say maybe some bad component. It was buillt (poorly) by a custom computer builder may 4 years ago.
keep the HD, sound card, burner, and maybe the case. my last build was just a replacement of the memory, processor, and video card. everything else was new enough to be transferable to the new build. I assume you arn't going to buy a new monitor or input devices?
