So my current computer consists of;
Windows XP Home
Intel Pentium 4 @ 2.93 Ghz
Some random motherboard that came with the computer
3GB RAM (Generic, not gaming or anything)
160Gb Hard Drive (Not sure what company, came with the computer)
NVidia GeForce GTS 450
600 Watt Xigmatic
A crappy CD drive from like 1999
Pretty much wondering if my PSU will power all of this still(I think it will, but better safe than sorry), and also looking for suggestions of what I could buy instead, to save money, or to increase power. Keepin' it under ~600$.
Quick question; will I need to buy a new fan for the new CPU? Will I need to buy cooling cement for the CPU?
You would still have some budget left for a Crucial M4 120GB SSD if you wanted more performance.
After all that your GPU would be the bottleneck.
Thanks for answering, man.
Are you sure that RAM is good? The reason I went with the G.Skill is because it had good reviews, and really don't hear too many bad things about it. But if you say it's good, I guess I'd take your word for it.
Also, I might go with that HDD because there's also the 30$ off Promo code, which means it's only $10 more than the 320.
Also, I'm old-school, not too into the whole SSD thing, I know it works, and it's nice, but hey, I KNOW HDD's will work.
As for the little joke there at the end, I chuckled.
Edit: Oh and do you think I'll need cooling cement on the CPU?
