Hi, I have an Alienware desktop that has served me well for a long time but is starting to show it's age. I can't afford to upgrade my motherboard, processor, video card, etc... So I am trying to decide if it would be worth upgrading just the vid card and ram to get another year out of it before I bite the bullet. right now i have 460w power supply, amd 4000+ processor, an abit av8 mobo with avg slot and 4 slots for RAM (I think they are 184 pin) running WinXP 64 bit. I herd there are still some decent vid cards for AGP that will run current gen games well, if this is true do you have any suggestions? What brand RAM is good for the money? Thanks in advance.

Hi darko2021, to find out what the best Ram is for your computer use the scanning facility at the Crucial link below, you don`t have to purchase from there just write down what the recommendations are, for the AGP card you need to provide a budget as there is no point us recommending a card if it is too expensive, the 460W psu will also limit your options.

Thanks, I was thinking in the $100-$150 dollar range. From what I was looking at from newegg this seems to be on the higher end of things any way. So what would you suggest?

For me it would have to be this one http://www.newegg.co...1-337-_-Product
You will notice the psu requirements state 400W or greater (click the details tab
at the link) so as long as your present psu is a good quality brand name you
should be ok and not have to upgrade it, do you know the psu details? if so post
them so we can check it out.
