Not new, but possible upgrade... please help! Tags: New Build Systems Last response: April 29, 2008 7:41 PM in Systems Share pous April 29, 2008 7:24:57 PM Hey all, I've got my rig as listed in sig, Q6600 @ 3.0 with AF7pro, 8800gts 640, 2 x 1gb g.skill ddr2800 RAM in an Antec P180. With the tax "stimulus" check expected to come out sometime this month... I'm thinking of using 3-400 for upgrades. Here are my initial thoughts: 1. Getting 2nd 20" (1680x1050) monitor 2. Getting 4 or 8 gb ram and switching to 64bit OS 3. Getting new 750i mobo & a 2nd video card Not real sure what to do I guess, was looking for tips and advice. I really like the idea of dual monitors, but when I try it now with just the 8800 it was a little laggy trying to game & watch a movie. That's why I was thinking of a second video card... I also love the idea of having lots of RAM... so the 64bit OS idea is appealing as well. All I use my computer for is gaming and watching movies/anime... And sometimes photoshop cs2. Let me know what you think of those 3 would be the best option, or if I could somehow accomplish 2 of the 3 with my intended budget... Thanks in advance More about : upgrade boonality April 29, 2008 7:31:45 PM 4GB of memory, 64bit OS, and 8800GTS G92. Or just the 8800GTS G92. boonality April 29, 2008 7:35:09 PM even better, sell the 640mb 8800, get 4GB of memory and the 8800GTS G92 and keep the OS you already have. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer pous April 29, 2008 7:41:47 PM Hmm... I can get 4gb by just grabbing another 2x1 for like $35... How much are the g92's now? Maybe around 170? so slightly over 200 for cost, and then add the cost of a 64bit os? sounds like I could get out of it for 350 or so? Would the G92 power 2 x 20" LCD's though? (noticeably better than my current card?) Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Possible Memory Upgrade Please HELP !!!!
