I've been using the same computer since 2004, and I think its time for an upgrade. I'm on a very strict budget, but i'd like to gain some performance on games like Need For Speed: Carbon, The Sims 2, FarCry, and Fable.
My current system:
1.7GHz AMD Sempron (overclocked to 2.0) *Socket 462
512MB Ram *pc2700
Geforce FX 5700le.
Raidmax 420w PSU (20+4 pin)
I'd like a new motherboard so I can get a newer graphics card and so I can upgrade my CPU later, I don't want to spring for the latest CPU right now.. I want something really cheap, I cant afford a 3ghz right now.
I'd LOVE a Geforce 8600gs, and those things are pretty cheap.
I have no idea how to upgrade however, what I will need.. how it will all work, I dont even know what to buy.. Thats why I came here for help
I'm also on a very small budget of $300, and without a credit card my only means of payment is money order (sites like newegg support that I see)
