I am getting ready to upgrade my current system in the next month and I was hoping to get some knowledge from you guys. My budget us $500 US. I already have a hard drive and case so I won't be needing those. I am a gamer and I might be using this system as a media center also.
MOBO/Processor: I have been an AMD guy all my life but I am currently looking at an intel 8400 is this a good or bad idea? Would this bundle work
Video Card: 8800 (?)
Sound card: Do I honestly need this ?
RAM: 2 or 4 gig ? Ram is cheap these days..but how much will my computer actually utilize? I plan to run Windows XP.
DVD/ CD Drive: I have one already, but its like 3 years old so i believe it is time to upgrade.
ok. soo...thats what i am thinking.. please correct me in my wrong doings
