I know this is going to make a lot of people laugh (very hard) but I am deciding between building a new computer and just "limping" my current one along for a while longer. We are planning on building one to replace hubby's computer; he does most of the gaming.
My question is this... I have a (very old, just to warn you) socket 775 board. (MSI PM8M3-V (MS-7211)) and it currently has a Celeron D 347 in it. I have looked at the upgrade compatibility chart and can run a Pentium D 960 (highest) which I can get for less than $100. Is it even worth the time and money? I think we have maxed out my board otherwise... I have 2G of RAM, a Nvidia GeForce 6200 (not sure if that is as high as I can go.) I mostly surf and work on pictures... but the boys would love to game better on mine if they could.
