My intent is to replace my motherboard, processor, and my RAM(because I'm running off of a motherboard that is not compatable with DDR RAM). However, because I'm so new to it all, I desperately need second, third, and fourth opinions on what I should buy. Keep in mind, my budget is $250 per part, so nothing extra-ordinary, but preferably something good.
I was thinking of getting a DFI LANPARTY board and an AMD Athelon processor. However, if this is a bad call, I'd really like some help in different parts.
Oh, and right now this is what I have:
Video card: ATI Radeon 9250 128MB 64bit
MOBO: ECS K7SEM Mainboard(256mb RAM and sound card integrated)
Processor: AMD Duron
Hard Drive: 80 Gig 7200 rpm
Total Ram: 512 MB
