I have a c2q q6700 compaq computer. I believe that since the mobo is from compaq and mass-made, there's no oc capabilities. I am a newbie to this, so do I change my mobo? I think the q6700 should have good oc potential so I'm not planning to get a new CPU.
My specs are also quite shitty:
2gb DDR2-800 RAM
320gb 7200rpm hdd
Window vista 32bit
Any idea what mobo and upgrades to get before I can game seriously? Need alot of help so please guys.
i would rather recommend building a brand new pc, because
-2gig is not enough for most games
-gpu is shitty
-vista is even worse...
-if you upgrade your gpu, you'll prolly need a better psu
-mobo might be necessary to upgrade.
=> 90% of the cost of a new pc are above components...
my recommendation: build a new pc
(look at some of the builds available on toms and ask for advice if you have chosen the parts.)
