About 2 years ago I built a custom gaming pc for online FPS such as Battlefield 2, Call of Duty 2, and others. I found my graphics card to not be the best, after playing these games that require a high performance PC. What I need to do is just to update my graphics card and ram, but maybe most of my core componets. What I have now is:
Heres the specs;
Motherboard: Mach Speed X-Caliber PT800DBP VIA Socket 478 ATX (INTEL ONLY!)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeforceFX 5700 LE 256MB
Processor: Intel Pentium 2.6 GHZ (A bit weak)
Harddrive: 400GB Maxtor ATA RAID (Plenty big)
RAM: Crucial Memory Ram Sticks (1 512MB and 1 256MB)
4 Fans in my case aswell, 3 inside and 1 big one outside the case, I get a good core temp and never overheat.
I thought this would be enough to get decent graphics but it wasnt. I'm thinking its due mainly to my weak processor. Does have any suggestions to place to buy decent PC parts at good prices? Mainly Im looking for a 3.0 or higher processor, maybe a geforce 6600 (
) and some more RAM sticks.
