What To Upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone

 

Here my comp's stats:

 

 

AMD XP 1800+

Soyo Dragon+

Radeon 7500 64mb ddr

512 DDR pc2100

Cool Master Fan for Socket A

IBM 60gb hdd 7200rpm

Western Digital 80gb hdd 7200rpm

TDK cd-rw 40/12/48

350w Power Supply

 

I think the case, power suppy, hdd's, cd-rw are all still good.

 

I know the graphics card is ancint history.

 

The motherboard, cpu are kinda old.

 

The memory is still good i think? but it may need to switch to be compatable with a different motherboard.

 

What do u guys think i should do to my comp with about a $350 budget?

 

!!Thanks in advance!!

Get a new video card, make sure your motherboard supports 8x AGP. Get a 9800 pro, itll do alot for your system.. You can always overclock your Cpu a bit to get 2000+ or something (1.8ghz)

For $350 you can get a 9800 Pro and an nforce2 motherboard so you can overclock that 1800+. That would probably be your best option.

how much money ya got to spend? ultimately, it'll determine what you can upgrade (on top of your soon-to-be-purchased 9800PRO)

He said $350... just read the post ;) (hehe). Thats plenty to get a 9800 pro and a decent nforce 2 motherboard.. you could even get a mobo and a slightly better processor within that budget I reckon (if you can get a 9800 for $200)..

Well, if he gets a new video card and an NF2 board, he'll need better RAM. I doubt he could take PC2100 past 150

true.. maybe 512 of pc3200 and gfx and mobo then (may be difficult to get high performance memory on that budget though.)

theres a guy in the Buy Sell Trade forum that has some really good prices and suppossedly hes legit.

 

If you have paypal you could get:

 

Asus A7N8X Deluxe motherboards - $88

Radeon 9700 Pro 128 - $110

AMD 2500+ barton core- $50

 

That comes out to $248 so you could still have $100 to buy some good pc3200. This is all if you trust him and dont mind buying online.

I agree with what's already been said "new mobo, new ram, and new video card" and if you could get that budget a little higher I would suggest getting a better processor too.

same here, im with everyone else. Killswitch actually met that guy selling his store inventory and he's legit so i would trust him, considering that i just bought something from him too. ;)
