I read some new games coming out like Need for Speed Shift / Section 8 / Aion.. ex. I read system Reqs and im sure i can play it by looking at the Recommend but will the fact that my cards an AGP and im still running DDR ram hold me back? My cpu is rated at the Recommend states for all the games but how well will it be able to hold up?
Yea i saw that Article, its pretty good but idk too much on how to OC threw the bios and i tryed the gigabytes Auto overclock program easy tuner 5 but when i put it up even 1% my comp freezes. Not sure if my mobo supports Easy tuner or not.
Looks like your just about maxed out for a s939 system. The only thing that you can do, which has already been mentioned, is to OC your CPU or if you lucky enough to find a faster CPU to install. I don't remember the fastest stock s939 CPU that you can get, but that is about all that you can upgrade to get a better gaming experience. The other option is to upgrade most of the system (CPU, Mobo, RAM, GPU). The upgrade could cost you around $300-500, depending on how much of an upgrade that you can afford.
Yea i think this comps hit its end on upgrades. Looking into OC and cooling now. Im just trying to stretch the life of the PC so i can save abit longer then have more to toss at a fully new system. Thanxs for the comments and help every.
Total $264 - $10 MIRc = $254!!! Now you could get this setup and sell your old one and have a decent upgrade for not too much $. Not sure that this situation works for you or not, but at least you can see what options are out there.
wow thanxs lunyone. That is pretty good. Most of teh stuff like psu case and stuff can be moved over np. 240$ for an upgrade isnt too bad at all.
For OC the cpu i was reading into it and its seems abit of time and work to get it just right with AMD 64 cpu. im looking at being able to get a fully new system by march / April next year. This pretty much just trying to keep this holding out till then rly. then it becomes a "community computer" at my home.
