Exclamation I need upgrades, What do you think?

Hi, Names Brad.

New to this forum, this is how it started i was out with my cousin a regular battlefield 1942 player who is quite "wise" at computer hardware and stuff of the sort he told me to come to a forum such as this and ask around to find out what i should get to keep me up 2 speed with the gaming world, im needing immediate answers for the specific upgrades i should get becouse im taking my computer in tommorow

Thanks in advance

Im Running:

Video: Geforce4 Ti 4400

Processor: Intel Pentium 4 1.80GHz

Space: 20 Gig on 2 seperate drives (:E, :C)

Ram: 256

If theres any other information you need to find out just post what you need to know and il try and get it for you but please people tell me what you think it is very important.

For upgrades just get a CPU upgrade and a 6800GT and some more ram. Your computer is still good to use. Sell what you have leftover from the upgrade.
