First post. I used to be a total computer fanatic but over the past hmmmmm let's see, about 10-12 years it kinda wore off. so I'm not really sure what to get.
Anyway I want to upgrade my machine because I really need to try GTA 4
My current configuration is
2.33 GHZ Core to duo over clocked to 3.0GHZ
4 GB ram
Nvidia 8800 GTS 640MB VGA card
Win 7 64bit
To be honest I haven't tried GTA 4 yet but I hear very bad things about the hardware requirements.
I think I do want a at least a 2.5 GHZ Quad core CPU, but I don't want to change my mo-board (EVGA 680i which takes the core 2 quad, but not sure about the i7)
I'll stick with the 4 gb-ram I think.
The issue is the video card. I got that card 3 years ago now when it cost a LOT of money but I'm sure it's now useless.
What's a good upgrade without going bankrupt?
I think the VGA card is the part that confuses me most. So many choices.....
thanx in advance for you recommendation
