Could you guys suggest possible options for minor upgrade?
As of right now I'm thinking doubling RAM with same 2x2 sticks $60 but I have no idea what to do with VGA
- get similar speed VGA to SLI for <$100? No experience with SLI, I was told would drain more power, better get 1 new video card.
- Replace with $100~200 nVidia 550 Ti Fermi from MSI or EVGA? Should it be 192/256-bit+ 1GB+?
What other details to look at? Will every new graphic card be compatible with my old mobo? Should I consider something newer?
Finally, if you have better options for me on what specific cards to get or if to focus on upgrading something else, please share your opinions.
Thank you so much!
