I'm hoping that some of you could pass along some advise for building a new Desktop system.
Sorry but I have been out of touch with what's new in the the way of hardware and I need some help.
My nephew has a AMD socket-A system with a AGP video card and he would like to upgrade it. He is really into gaming.
However he has a limited budget of $350 - $400 dollars.
I do have some memory that I can give him and besides cannibalizing the usual stuff from the old system I imagine that it will come down to:
- Motherboard ($100-$150) est
- Video Card ($75-$150) est
To start, I have no idea where to begin on selecting a Processor, AND/INTEL???
In the past I have always gone with AMD. The system I'm using now is a AMD x2 6000hrz.
I would like to go with a processor that gives the most bang for the buck with a motherbaord that has room to take a processor upgrade possibly in the future?
