I'm looking to get a little more life out of my PC and had a quick question. I will be building a new system maybe within a year when I have the money, but for now wanted to do an upgrade. Current specs:
MB - Gigabyte GA-M55SLI-S4
Processor - AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ @2200MHz
Video Card - GeForce 7600GT
RAM - 1 Gig DDR2 (I think its 5300 or 333Mhz or whatever)
Power Supply - Decent Enermax 500W I got last year
Win XP prof 32 bit
And I play on a 20 in. screen at 1400x1050
I'm thinking for a decent upgrade under $100 it will be worth it. Something along the lines of this for a video card
Newegg.com - XFX HD-467X-ZDF2 Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
but then I also thought I needed RAM. I'm looking at 2GB sticks and was wondering if it would be better to get 2GB at the same frequency as whats in there now for a total of 3GB of slow RAM, or to take out my 1GB and get a 2 GB stick of higher speed RAM (my MOBO supports up to 800Mhz I believe).
I don't totally understand all of this though so if I'm wrong about something let me know.
Otherwise what are some suggestions?
