Im in the process of upgrading my computer, namely RAM and a CPU. The reasons are mainly for gaming. My computer hasnt a chance in [bleep] of running any of the latest or future generation games and struggles running DVDs. At the moment the specs are
Gigabyte FA-7VRX (2002)
IBM 7200 40 GB HDD
256 Crucial PC 2100 RAM
AMD Duron 850mhz
I also recntly brought a ATI radeon 9700 128mb graphics card which I have plugged in and seems to work.
Im looking at getting a 2.00 ghz CPU, probably an Athlon. Is this enough/too little too game away for at the least 4 years? I read in a previous post that Athlon was better im open too any suggestions, Celeron/Intel etc. Should I get more RAM or is what I have enough? im looking to not have to upgrade my computer for 4 yrs or so.Im a student and as you can guess am not loaded but am willing to spend £100 maximum.
Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am completely lost. Thank you.
