I'm looking for some advice about whether to upgrade or buy a new system.
I've currently got an Alienware Aurora R5 which I purchased in 2006. The system went back to Alienware about 18 months ago and they replaced a bundle of stuff as it was still under warranty which is why I'm unsure as to what is and isn't worth keeping.
Windows XP Service pack 3
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 2.40 Ghz
ASUSTeK Computer INC. M3A32-MVP DELUXE Rev 1.xx
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 [Display adapter] (2x)
If my understanding is correct the GTX 295 is still pretty good but I'm lacking RAM and processor power. Also is it right I need to upgrade my OS to use more than 4GB RAM? If I'm correct about the graphocs cards and the OS I was thinking of getting a new base system and putting the GTX 295 in it, that way i can spend more on the processor, RAM, Motherboard and HD.
