Hello, I am currently using DDR2 for my current rig. I'm not a hardcore gamer but I like pretty pretty lights and am accustomed to running things on medium to ultra settings until recently. My video card has recently bit the dust and I was looking to upgrade everything to DDR3.
My current rig is: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1688...
I purchased it in december of 2009. I also upgraded to 2x4gb of RAM
The current upgrades I'm looking at are as follows:
I don't think your planned components are enough of an upgrade to warrant the cost and I don't think you'd notice much (if any) difference between DDR2 and DDR3. Other than being dated, there is nothing wrong with your current system a new graphics card won't fix; something along the lines of a GTX 660TI
What would you recommend and is in my price range? I've been finding my system slowing down alot and the response time is getting pretty slow. BIOS Startup doesn't take long but after I log in it takes at least 5 minutes for me to be able to click something.
