I agree. That's quite an old setup.
Pentium 4... yikes.
If you're gonna be upgrading anything, you'll probably need to upgrade it all. All the Phenoms are very inexpensive right now. You could get a solid setup for under $400 with the hardware you already have.
Hey folks, consider it a video upgrade awaiting the rest of the hardware... At least he's not asking for AGP! The 275GTX may draw too much current for the power supply you have, making the 4750 a more appropriate upgrade for now.
Sorry, I Did some checking for the right sys specs.
Does this change any thing?
