Approximate Purchase Date: this week (the closer the better)
Budget Range: 100-250 Euro System Usage from Most to Least Important: Just gaming, I have a notebook for work
Parts to Upgrade: CPU, Graphic Card. Maybe RAM (still think 4GByte are enough for a single game?!).
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: amazon.de
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
NS2 FPS ~30 and <20 by action.
What is the better choice, upgrade or a complete new System?
I'm not up to date to Hardware for more than 3 or 4 years.
I thought about a new CPU - Phenom 2 X4?
Maybe a SSD instead of my HDD, but that would only speed up loading time, not the actual performance, is that right?
Also the 4GByte RAM is not much, but does 1 Game needs more?
All I want is a system which runs NS2 (with or without details - i dont care) performant.
