My current mobo lost one of its memory slot lock so I sold my 512MB DDR (which can be bought back by giving back $18) if that problem can be sold. My main use of the PC is Playin DirectX 8,9 Games, playin Divix movies,MP3s. etc. Wat should I do? Upgrade mobo,CPU,RAM+low end card/my card or buy just a new GPU for $150-$200.
