Upgrading Old Pc
Hey, my stats of my pc are in my sig below so it is about 4 year old computer but it is in need of a little bit of upgrading.
I dont do any serious gaming, I *attempt* to play oblivion on it, i say attempt because its generally pretty bad framerate and studders alot when on MEDIUM settings. I also plan to buy starcraft 2 when it comes out... WHEN. lol
My question is, would upping my processor and an extra gig of ram do much good? ram seems to be much cheaper these days and since i still use xp 32bit 3gigs is the limit. my processor is old and slow so i was hoping i could find a faster one of the same type thats maybe 2.6ghz to 3.0ghz and that they would be pretty cheap. but its hard to find any non AM2 processors.
I only have around 75-100 dollars to spend so i didnt add a new video card to the equation.
