December 04 as a gift my pops gets me a new computer. I really haven't known much about computers until like a month-2 months ago. But I have 512mb of ram, an amd athlon xp 3200+ 2.20ghz, crappiest 64mb vid card, crappy onboard sound, and everything else complete crap. I recently got a 360 and a lot of stuff for it so I dont really have enough for a complete build, but I wanna spend like 300-400 on an upgrade.
New motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127179
I selected this because my processor is socket A. That means no pci-e, so I figured I should get something that can support the 6800gs.
New RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227054
I would eventually get a 2nd one of these.
New Vid Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130002
I'm basically using this for some photoshopping,some video editing,itunes,aim,internet,and occasionally some bf2
Another ? - Could these selections let my pc run BF2MC on max settings?
Please help a noob in need.
