Upgrade - What next? Tags: Homebuilt Systems Last response: June 21, 2009 4:33 PM in Systems Share apsinger85 June 18, 2009 7:33:41 PM Hello everyone, I am looking for some input on what I should upgrade next on my system. It's a former server computer that I've worked into a light gaming system: 1 3.4 Ghz Xeon Processor 3 GB PC2-3200 ECC RAM 1 48X CD-R/DVD Drive 1 256 MB NVidia Quadro FX3400 Graphics Card 2 80GB Hard Drive 7200RPM Windows XP Pro SP3 I think that's all of the "vitals" - if you need more info, please let me know! I have room for one more processor, and I can have up to 6GB of RAM total. I'm really looking for "bang for my buck", but where should I go now? thanks!
