Is my system worth a current upgrade? Tags: Homebuilt Systems Last response: January 17, 2012 4:50 AM in Systems Share Caustic Fox January 17, 2012 1:24:11 AM I am considering on upgrading one major component on my system. Whatever it be a new CPU or more ram, or a graphics card. I don't know if its worth the investment, for maybe 1 years tops. I primarily use my computer for games. Suffice to say, my current hardware is already struggling enough to the point that some of the newer games are almost unplayable. My Specs: MSI 785GT E-63 motherboard AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ (Oc'ed from 2.8GHz to 3.08GHz) Cooled by: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus BFG GTX 260 55nm overclocked 3GB DDR2 RAM (2x 512MB and 2x 1GB) Rosewill Challenger Case Hmmm... what do you guys suggest? My Budget is $150 More about : system worth current upgrade g-unit1111 a c 91 B Homebuilt system January 17, 2012 4:50:14 AM For that price the only real logical upgrade to that system I could see would be to upgrade your GPU to a Radeon 6850. You'd be wise to upgrade your motherboard and CPU but I don't know if it could be done for that cheap. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources 5870 with my current system - worth it?
