Hi I have a Gateway DX 4200-09. I've upgraded it with a 550PSU and a nvidia 9400 gt. Is it worth continuing to upgrade or should I just get a new computer?

What else is in a Gateway DX 4200-09? If we know that, it'll be easier to give good advice to you. :)

Mostly for gaming. Right now there's a lot of stuff I can't run.


You could get a new graphics card, something on the order of a 5770, and even that might be bottle necked by your CPU. :cry: 
you could get a SSD to improve boot and load times.

really, anything else would not be recommended, as the increase in performance would not be worth the cost. :non: 

I would recommend saving up towards a new build, instead of spending money on the older technology.. :sol:
