  1. Is that budget just for the processor? For the upgrade you need RAM, motherboard and CPU. That would come close to 25000 INR average.
  2. Yea......i mean my mobo is AM3 ready with memory controller!!!!
    ......n i intend to run on ddr2
    atleast for now!!!!
    ....so processor is all i need to upgrade atleast for a decent 3D Mark06 score(it presently reads 4800 odd with my old p4 519K gettin 729 cpu benchmark)!!!
  3. @dipankar2007i

    I believe my GPU is bottlenecked by my CPU(an old p4 519K at 3.06GHz)......
    Again i would like 2 say dat i only aim 2 play most games at 30fps ......so ever i feel da need 2 change ma GFX card i might, bt now i've hardly used it long enuf bro!!!!!
  4. Am a little confused here.. You say your motherboard is AM3 ready so basically it means that you already have a motherboard.. As such, it being an AMD processor compliant motherboard, you need to purchase an AMD CPU and not Intel (skeptical to say i know).. I too agree that you have a weak card for any of the modern day games (be it at 30 fps also)..

    okk...yea no point in swappin ma mobo fr LGA 1156...bt den i suppose i had betr go fr an AMD Phenom II X4 965BE n xchange ma GFX fr a newer one(say GTS 450 or Radeon 5770).
    is dat goin to solve da purpose????

    Agreed! :)

    This is a proper tech forum and not hippie club! Please stop using endless punctuations. Just one is enough. And type in proper English makes it more readable and decent to look at!
