Yep, trying to upgrade that bastard will just be frustrating.

When you say its not fast enough.. what do you mean? What sort of games do you want to play? If you want to be "up to par" for gaming, be prepared to shell out $800-1000.

Smiley, I'm sorry to do a quick hijack Ludin, but where did you get your handle? Aenema?

What games do you want to play? You can build a basic low-end gaming system for about $500-600. If you want the best graphics quality at high framerates, you will need to bump that up to $1000-$1500. But even a bottom of the barrel end $500 gaming system will be better than what you have now.

Negatory captain.. check Tool's website, the album title and the song are called Ænima/ænima... many websites just list it as aenima.
Please... do not tool around with my tool knowledge or I will have to stinkfist you.
