My pc is an Alienware full tower with 2gigs ram, amd athelon 4000+ 2.5 ghz. 460w power supply and a crappy ati 128mb 9550s graphics card. I have been trying to figure out my best options as far as getting a new video card but in doing so I opened a can of worms. I have an AGP based motherboard, so aftter alot of looking around I am faced with this question, should I shell out $300 for a decent agp card that I Will have to update soon any way, or do I spend $100-$150 on a new moboard and $150 on a pciexpress card better than the agp? obviously getting a new mobo and pcie card is the way to go but I have never taken a cpu apart before in my life. I mean I think I know everything I need to but I'm not sure of myself. Does any one have some links they can send me on mobo replacement? What kind of mobo would work and fit in my pc? The thing I am most worryed about is that I will get the new mobo and some connection won't be compatable with my hardware. Any help will be great.

Welcome to Geeks to Go, darko2021.

It would be advisable for you to keep your questions on the same subject in a single thread. This way you do no have people having to answer you more than once. It also groups the answers so others can read and understand a bit better. I am going to close this thread so others will follow up on your other thread.
