Right now i am running:
AMD Athlon 4400+
2 gigs of ram
Radeon x1950 pro
none of which is overclocked
(the motherboard does have pci slots) *someone asked me before.
Anyways my question is what can i get to upgrade this computer for the most bang for my buck for the holdiay seasons. With christmas and the like coming up i am coming into some cash. max limit is 500 dollars.
I am looking for something that can play about any game out their with very little latency and the like.
This is an acer computer with the EM61SM/EM61PM mobo which ive heard a lot of bad things about.
I am currently looking at these possible situations and was wondering which would be the larger upgrade for my system and if these things would even fit into my tower, or some advice on how i would even check myself.
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail $280
ABIT IP35 Pro LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard 180
8800 gt oc grahpics card with my current opperating system posted above.
I am open to any and all suggestions about differnt types of mobo and processors out there that might do the trick for less cost.
