Hi guys so this is my current PC that i built back in 2008 with the help of this forum! and now i think its time I upgrade a little bit. Nothing too expensive. though so budget will be around $500 total for the upgrades. Reason for upgrade is to catch up to modern times, lol. I am a avid gamer and would like to play the next gen games such as Shadow of Mordor and Watch Dogs, but my current built cannot play it.
heres the parts i bought last time and built my own PC:
CPU INTEL|PDC E2200 2.2G 775 65N $93.99
MNTR LG|LCD 19" 2MS L1933TR-SF RT $229.99
DVD BURN SAMSUNG|SH-S203N SATA LS $29.99
VGA XFX PVT88PYDF4 8800GT 512M RT $229.99 (This died a couple years ago so i got another Video Card - Nvidia GeForce GTS250)
SPEAKER LOGITECH|X-230 BLK 2.1 $38.99
HD 80G|ST 7K 8M SATA2 ST380815AS $43.99 (This got full so bought another HD that has 500GB)
PSU CORSAIR|CMPSU-550VX 550W RT $99.99
CASE RAIDMAX | ATX-268WB BLK RT $29.99
MB ABIT IP35-E P35 775 $86.99
MEM 1Gx2|G.SK F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ $44.99
Currently using 32bit Windows 7 Home Premium
So there's that, back then those prices were beast lol, but now i know i can twice the power for half the price.
Things I would like to upgrade:
- I would like to have more RAM but for that I believe i need to upgrade the processor and to upgrade the processor i need new Mother Board? Im not too sure about the Mobo, but i do know i will need new CPU and RAM.
- I want to get Windows 7 64Bit so not too sure what i need to upgrade.
That's basically it. Now I leave it to you guys for your input on whats the best way to get this done! These forums have helped me out last time and i have no doubt ya'll can help me this time around too!
