Just wondering; I'm thinking the processor+ Motherboard will need to be the first to be replaced. If you have any suggestions of a combo that'd be compatibly with all the above components, please post it :).

 

 

Maybe it was the chicken nugget?

 

And yes, this is my pseudo-decent system.

Chicken nugget definitely...

 

if you look at my 2nd rig in my sig... pretty much that whole rig was my previous main rig but with the 9800pro (415/360) in there... so i took the graphics card and everything else in my main rig is new...

 

that's cos i don't like unused hardware laying around... i could have got it in stages, like mobo+cpu and use rest old stuff, then replace stock hs/f with 3rd party, then get better ram, then etc etc...

Ahh yes, forgot to include that- it is PC3200. Thanks for the info guys; I thought it was the processor+ motherboard too :D. Though my next purchase may be a new monitor and case... because usually those last (easily) 5 years while the other components last a maximum of two before they're too obsolete to do anything on newer games :).
