Need to upgrade to run Battlefield Bad Company: 2
Jan 29, 2010, 11:21 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.

You didn't told your budget
Here is a good combo for i7 920
Your PSU is fine
Hard Drive is good(I guess)
Go for an 5770 HD
If you don't take i7 personall
I suggest you to go for i5-750
You'll save about $100 for Video card
