Upgrade or Buy NEW?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys just a quick question, whether or not I should upgrade or just buy new. Here are my system specs:

 

DFI Lanparty SLI-DR

1GB OCZ el platinum ram

1 74gb 10k raptor

1 evga 7800GTX

sounblaster zs gamer sound card

AMD athlon 4400+ dual core chip

 

You guys let me know if this mobo is still capable of producing life. Basically im looking at buying the new 8800GTX, ram, 1TB HD space, and a new AMD chip. You guys be the judge on if im better off just buying a new comp from scratch and going core 2 extreme, or should i upgrade this system because it will give me a couple more years of fun with some more ram/GPU/HD space.

 

Please if you could post your reccomendations for upgrade, if you choose that i should upgrade, I would appreciate it. Always nice to compare your thoughts with others.

 

Thanks again

If you're buying RAM, remember DDR2 is cheaper and faster... but what you have will give you quite a bit more life :-) Add that 8800GTX and you'll be fine for a while...

the board only supports DDR right? Is it just cheaper to buy DDR2 and it downclocks to DDR speeds? reccomendations? 4gb? or 4x512?
