My question is what gan I keep and what do I buy newto move up a few notches? I have my eye on a graphics cardin fact I have bought it...(GIGABYTE Radeon HD 4850 512MB )
I look forward to your replies.
if you have bought a 4850 which is about 100 dollars i would assume you are building a low end gaming computer
Thanks bombat1994 for the reply I have never used an Athlon before I will look up info on it. I presume then that my dual core is no longer acceptable as a processor.
Games now can utilise the 4 cores?
As for prices you quote where can I get prices like that?
Are they in USA dollars?
As an ad on to my original I have currently a tower case with 650w power supply
the athlon in my posts is a tri core, but if you want the athlon 640 is about 30 dollars extra, it wont make much difference in gaming but in normal tasks like web browsing and stuff it will be faster.
