Exclamation What I need

Hi guys! My name is Max and I am new to the forum.

I would like to know what I should upgrade to play a game call of duty 2 or the sims 2 at it's highest settings. Ive tried playing both on mine, but the performence is sometimes slow, especily on the sims 2 with all exspantion packs installed. It would be good If some one could help me. I am willing to spend 500$ to upgrade.

Post back soon

The main thing to think about is the gfx card. an upgrade will fix this. go for something like the 7600 u dont need better to run those games.
