  1. Biggest need would be a GPU maybe HD5770
  2. AAAAHHHHHH CHOOOOOO!!!! :lol:

    a new graphics card and a bit of an overclock on that e7400
  3. but what is the HD 5770 system requirement??
  4. System Requirements

    450 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connectors recommended (600 Watt and two 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX technology in dual mode)
  5. ^ It only needs one 6-pin, mate, two for Crossfire;)

    @ Dead_95: What OS are you using? If, like me, you're still clinging to XP then the HD5770 will need you to switch to Vista or Win 7 in order to get its DX11 benefits-when they arrive.
  6. the OS is vista ultimate 32 bit
  7. 5770 is good choice, it has almost same performance with 4870 with DX11 extra, more cool and low power consumtion. change to win7 64 bit for full quality from the card..
  8. And at that point, if you have a generic PSU, you will probably need to replace it.
  9. jSc: TO REPLACE the by what wattage??

    on seeing this link it seems that the GTX 275 brand is better than the ATI

    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Retail -- $167.99

    ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler - Retail -- $36.98

    ASUS ENGTX260 GL+/HTDI/896MD3 GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - Retail -- $179.99

    G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBNT - Retail -- $84.99

    Total: $469.95

    You'd be plenty happy with that. If you don't care about using two sticks of DDR2 for 4GB and would rather just add the seperate 2GB (it probably doesn't matter too much) it'll be cheaper too. Regardless, DDR2 seems to be as expensive as DDR3 now. :| And as others have said, you may want to throw a solid 80 PLUS 500 or more wattage power supply in there.
  11. Would you you recomend me if I go with the GTX 285 as GPU???................
  12. IMO should you not spend a penny on your computer and fix your financial problem :)
  13. k3rast4se: and then............
  14. ok sorry I was just doing my good samaritan :P. IMO I would prepare my computer for an overclock in order to get more power. I would do the following thing..

    -New psu something like corsair TX650 89.99 (newegg)
    -New high performance DDR2, G.Skill DDR2 2x2GB 5-5-5-15 90.99$ (newegg)
    -New heatsink, artic cooling freezer 7 pro 36.98 (newegg)
    -And finally sapphire 4890 vapor-x 1gb 209.99 (newegg)

    426$ before taxes :P
    All those part are available on newegg, us dollar and free shipping :)
    And finally do a good overclocking of the cpu and gpu and you will have an excellenmt bang for the bucks

    Total price:
  15. I know you could only change the cpu+gpu but you will have 2 problem. Psu not sufficient and 2GB of DDR2 won't be enough. And if you only change the psu+gpu, you will bottleneck with your cpu. But if you overclock the cpu you will most likely overheat and the ram won't be stable enough
