Mainboard : Acer F690GVM
Processor : AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ @ 2300 MHz
Video Card : ATI Technologies Inc Radeon X1200 Series
Physical Memory : 2048 MB (2 x 1024 DDR2-SDRAM )

Kinda thinking about getting Eve Online and/or some other pc games in awhile and wanted to know what would be the best upgrade for me. I haven't gamed on a pc n a long time so don't want to invest too much. But then again I might get addicted again *shrug* So, what would be a decent upgrade and what would possibly be a great upgrade? Thanks :)

Depending on your PSU & screen resolution

stick an ATI 4670 (around $60) into your system and you can play Eve or any other MMO out there on good settings

a Nvidia 9800GT or ATI 4830 (around $90) will let you play most other games on solid settings but require more power

Thanks much :) . Looks like the latter two are nearly identical, guess it comes down to nvidia/ati preference? ATI has been good to me thus far, thanks again :)
