Upgrading computer, need advice.
I've got an AMD 1.15ghz system with 512mb ram, two 7200 rpm drives, cdrw, new PNY Geforce 5500 128mb, creative labs sound card, 4 port USB card, powered by 350watts and stuffed into a Soyo ATX case.
Well, I'm looking to upgrade! I've got a child on the way and would like to do some video editing(nothing serious) and also upgrade for gaming.
I'd like to be around 3ghz(by Intel standards basically compete with a low end P4 and able to upgrade a processor later).
Options I'd like to have:
4 PCI slots
4 memory slots
2 USB slots
I'm looking to go with an AMD processor, 1mb of ram, and a mobo that can have a processor upgrade later. All of this for $250 total.
I've been out of the hardware loop for some time and I'd appreciate any and all help.
