Hi guys,

 

Its been awhile. Ive been using my rig (signature) for years now and it can no longer handle high end games or graphics. Im not sure what to do with it though so im hoping for advice. Would you upgrade components, which ones? or go for a new build? Everything is running at stock speeds.

 

Would love to hear your thoughts!

Phenom might hold you back a little bit but I would see if anyone you know has a newer AMD card that you could drop in to see how well your computer will handle things.  Might be able to get by for a few more years just upgrading your graphics card.  It's pretty dated if you're trying to run newer games.

Put in a much better video card.  And maybe an SSD.  Then decide if it's still not enough.
