  1. Not sure about prices where u at but at USD 500 something like

    AthlonII X3 425
    770/785G/760G AM3 mobo
    2GB DDR3 1333 RAM
    HD 4770/GTS 250
    Antech Earthwatts 500/OCZ ModXtreme 500
  2. ^you can get better than that for $500

    RAM: F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM (2x2gb RipJaws 1600mhz CAS7)
    CPU: Athlon II X4 620
    PSU: Corsair TX650
    GPU: Sapphire 5770 (100283L)

    which should come in about $580

    or swap the gpu for something a little lower, but no DX11:
    Powercolor 4850 1gb

    setting it at $525
  3. Thank you very much on your advise.
    There been a change in plans, can't afford this much anymore.
    I must change the nessecery in order to have an enjoying gaming experience until i can afford the gaming rig.

    I have:
    Motherboard: As-Rock N68-s
    Ram: 2GBs
    Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 9400GT
    Cpu: AMD Athlon x64 x2 6000+ at 3.00Ghz
    Power Suply:550W.

    Yet all my games lag like hell most even at the lowest settings
    i think it's the CPU but i'm not sure, what can i change in order to have a more enoyable gaming.
  4. both cpu and gpu
  5. Yep, its definitely your GPU, the 9400 GT is crap. CPU is more then enough. What power supply brand is it?

    a 5770, 5830, or 5850 would be just in your price range.

    5770 is better for resolutions below 1600x1200, 5850 is better for 1900x1200 resolution and the 5830 fits in between.

    If you have a quality PSU, any one of those cards will work with your psu.

    *EDIT* I would get a 5850 with 2GB more of ram, should come to $360
  6. My PSU is crap i got on discounts its not from any brand 550 Wats (Crap crap i except to burm my pc to crisps anytime soon)

    At least i got a Very Decent UPS.

    So Far im at

    Radeon HD 5770 1GB 165$
