At first I would like to say that I'm happy to be a part of this forum. As you will probably notice further this message, my english writing wont always be grammatically correct and this is due to the fact that I'm a Dutch person, so I hope that it won't annoy you guys to much :P.
I have some questions about how to upgrade my PC (Note: I'm not interested in buying a new one, even if it is cheaper :P), so that it will be able to play highend games in a reasonable resolution (1680x1050 would be perfect although i would settle for less) with a decent fps (atleast +12). I have a kinda big budget so don't worry about price tags to much :P, I'm just worried that i might accidently blow up my PC or something or get a completen overkill.
So now I will post the specs on my PC;
model: I have a Aspire M5620 desktop
RAM: 4 GB RAM (slot 1 = 1GB, slot 2 = 2GB, slot 3 = 1GB) What I'm already sure of, is that I am buying another 2 GB stick to put into slot 4 so it will run in dual channeling, I know i can do this without ****ing up :P.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40 Ghz
GPU: Ati Radeon HD 2600 Pro
Videocard slot: PCI Express 1.0
Power supply: ATX-250PA
Sound card: ATI HDMI Audio
Now I'm wondering how i can max out this thing?
I'm looking to buy atleast;
-That 2GB RAM stick
-A New GPU which will also need;
* A New Power supply (I guess atleast?)
-Perhaps a better CPU
Can anyone suggest what would be best for me to upgrade, if you need more info about my desktop, just ask
