Hi ive had this system now for some time & feel its about ready for an upgrade, I'm just not sure the best way to got about it.
I defo need a new graphics card & at least 2gb more memory, so the question is what is the best upgrade option for me...just a new graphics card & memory, will this make the system faster at all or is there something else i should do ?? thanks.
Depends on your windows version for the ram; going from 2 to 3 gb won't help much with 32 bit windows. For the cpu, try dropping the ram a notch in speed and overclocking the 8400. For my system, I dropped the 1600 ram to 1333, and increased the cpu fsb from 200 to 240 for a twenty percent overclock that's very stable. The ram is back running at 1600 on the nose. For graphics, depends on your budget and what games you want to run. List your favorite games; I'm not a gamer.
