More about time upgrades
  1. Forgot to mention I Have:
    Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB WD10eads 65M2BO
    Windows 7 Home Premium
  2. build a new rig basically.

    That entire thing is awful, except for the GPU (and i am amazed that even works on a 250w PSU)

    even the harddrive is a slow brand.
  3. are you running the 5770 now?
  4. ^ -1 /facepalm

    $500...listed in OP.

    haha, j/k. get a coffee though 384.
  5. haha, thats ok. That made me smile coming from such a Vet like you. Great early morning comedy. Thanks! (7am on the East Coast here!)
  6. This setup will get you a little wiggle room to get either a much better GPU (GTX560/HD6950).
