I had this system build by compuzone a few years back, but instead of letting them do this one, I'd like to try it out on my own. I think it would be more cost effective and I'm sure yall have a line on better hardware.
The problem I'm having is choosing a board/chip that will work with what I have, and having something that will last me the next few years until the latest and greatest items come out; not to mention getting a good deal price wise.
I'd like to stick with the AMD, so I'm guessing the next step up would the 64x2?
I play a good bit of games and lately I've found that I can't play some of the higher games and playing things like World of Warcraft I find myself lagging when I get near a big group. In WOW, my processor runs about 80% normally, but when I get down deep it stays at 100%. Of course in this example, video settings and internet connection are fine.
I'm not saying I need a major gaming system, but I would like to have the power when I choose to upgrade the little things.
Would anyone happen to have a suggestion on what board/chip I should be looking at?
Anywhere on the net that would have a good combo price?
My hardware I would consider pretty much normal..
2G Ram (Don't see myself needing anymore)
Case unknown (I'd like to keep this if possible)
GF 7600 GS AGP (Would like to stick with AGP if possible, unless a combo has better PCI card)
Sound blaster live 5.1
2 HD's 1 main, 1 slave
Win XP (Plan on staying with as long as possible)
I'd like to stay around $300-$400, but if there's something better for a little more, I could swing it.
I've added in some pics just in case I needed them and yes, I know it needs to be cleaned. 8)
Sorry to have to ask point blank what I should get, but at this point I have no clue.
Thanks for the help!!
