I wanted a little advice on general upgrading. My system is fairly modest - in fact, I'd say there are probably kids doing their homework these days on beefier rigs tbh - but I can't afford a new gaming system unfortunately. I could afford to upgrade a bit though if it was worthwhile.
At present, I have an E7200 core duo (2.53ghz x 2), a 9800 gt 512mb card and three mgbs of RAM. I can't remember the speed of the RAM, but it was decent stuff bought from Crucial (and it has those flashing lights on the side, so it must be good!).
Not a whole lot, I know, but by keeping the system optimised I'm able to do fairly well. I can play Dragon Age on max and Rift on high settings (with a little FPS drop-off in busy areas).
I could afford to upgrade some if it was worthwhile, but I don't know where to spend money. I was hoping someone might have an idea. My board can't take any more RAM and I'm on XP 32bit. I just need a little more performance for now and I'm keen to avoid the whole hassle of a new board etc.. Would a bigger card with more on-board RAM make any difference, for eg?
