Microsoft Windows XP Service pack 2
Pentium R Dual-Core CPU E5200 @ 2.50 GHz
3gb of ram
Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT (very old i know, but hey, it can run arma 2 (Dayz) not amazingly, but it can still run it
550 Wat psu (dont worry this is brand new, dont need a new one.
Would it be worth upgrading the Ram,Gfx card and putting win 7 on it?
Or should i just get a new computer?
I will mainly be using this for making games, using unity 3d and blender etc
I will be playing games, so a decent gfx card would be nice, very smooth on very low graphics.
I dont have a set price exactly, but can you recommend some parts for the cheapest that you can which would do what i need it to do? :]
The link pits the Core 2 Duo E6400 against modern processors so I thought it might help you determine whether to just upgrade the graphics card or more. I'm not sure how you got those systems at those prices but I'm assuming you didn't include the hard drive, case, OS and power supply (I hope yours is of good quality). You can get a H77 motherboard with AMD Radeon build to save money. Both the HD 7870 and GTX 660 will perform better than the HD 7850 if you don't mind spending more for it. As for Intel or AMD that choice is yours.
I looked up the prices from UK sites and they are much higher than simply converting the currency. Yes you can include either the HD 7870 or GTX 660 with e_X's build since you have a new 550W PSU. Keep in mind that you won't be able to overclock the i5-3470 and thus you don't need an aftermarket cooler.
