if you have bought a 4850 which is about 100 dollars i would assume you are building a low end gaming computer

there isnt really anything that is worth keeping unless you want to keep the hardrives

if the 4850 is the graphics card and you want a gaming computer i would have to think the budget is somewhere around 500

so

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

Thanks

yeh there us dollars the site is www.newegg.com

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.

Does Newegg.com ship internationally?

Newegg.com does not currently ship internationally; we only deliver to locations within the United States and to Puerto Rico.

I guess then its no use to me in Australia :(
