Solved Need to upgrade to run Battlefield Bad Company: 2 Tags: CPUs Last response: January 29, 2010 11:48 AM in CPUs Share dex_Bn January 29, 2010 11:21:33 AM Hey all, just wondering what the cheapest way to approach upgrading my old beast. Hoping to reuse as many parts as possible, Current System Spec's. CPU: AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+ (Codename Venice) Ram: 2gb DDR Mainboard: ASUS A8N-SLI SE GFX: NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT PSU: ATX12V PK-500 (500w) HDD: Western Digital Black 1TB Interested in the i7's, if I can pickup one w/ a compatible motherboard & ram for a reasonable price. Would like the system to last at least 2 years before needing another overhaul.
