Hello, lately I've been thinking about upgrading my computer, specifically to play modern games at better detail. I don't have unlimited resources of course, but I should be able to upgrade 1 or 2 parts, but first, I need to know which parts to upgrade to get the best result!
And so I've come here to ask:
My current setup is a few years old.
Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2180 2.00 GHz (LGA 775)
ATI Radeon 3870 HD (512 MB)
2 GB DDR2 RAM
Now, I would like to get some more performance and FPS in games. So I ask you, what do you think I should upgrade first? Thanks for all responses in advance!
How much do you have to spend and what resolution are you playing at?
The GPU should make the biggest apparent difference in games, but the CPU is still a big limitation. You might be able to pick up a used Core 2 Quad and a solid GPU used on here or other forums for a decent price. Again, I have no idea in terms of your price range.
