It's halfway decent because it runs. A decent computer would run well.
I would really like a new computer. The thing is, I really don't have that much money, and it seems that if I do buy a new computer now with what I'm comfortable spending it'll already be out of date. That's why I plan on upgrading next year, when I have more money.
Right now, however, I play quite a bit of Jedi Academy, and my computer runs it all right except for some levels, which do not appear because my computer doesn't support something in them.
It may be $100 down the drain, but that's still much less expensive than a new computer and it's all I would need for awhile. I've gotten used to the lagging by now.
I believe my computer uses a 20-pin connector to the mobo, would I need to upgrade the board?
Or, would I even need to upgrade the PSU with this FX5200?
? It doesn't say it needs a power supply, and would support everything I think I need.
