Hi, I'm wanting to upgrade soon and just had a couple questions.
This is what I have:
Windows XP (32bit)
AMD x2 Dual Core 6000+ (3.0Ghz)
2x 1GB Ballistix Tracers DDR2 PC8500
2x 1GB KVR DDR2 PC6400
ATI Radeon HD4850 512MB
Seagate 500GB SATA
LG DVD Burner
OCZ 850w gamexstream
LG 20.1 Flatron Wide LCD
I can't afford it all at once and want to build it over the next month or two. I'm
just wondering which to get first. Would throwing that card in the system I have now
be a big deal? Then working on the rest, or should I focus on the Mobo/CPU/Memory and
just run the 4850 with it for now? Or do you have any better suggestions/advice for me?
Prices look high on win 7, CPU where are you buying from? Check out newegg.com
I'll assume this system is for gaming by your setup, so go for 4GB dual channel ram 2*2GB.
I see no reason not to go for the card now, though it will eat up some of your 4GB RAM limit.
You could drop to a 955 and OC it to 965 for $20 savings.
Do you think 4gigs of ram is enough for this? And one other question, do you think I should get
the new card or windows 7 first? I only have maybe 300 at the moment, for a couple more weeks
at least. Anyway I appreciate the input, thanks.
