hi! Im new here,and I need help because i dont know much in computers.I searched on google for a forum about pc hardware and I found this one
Im a gamer and I was wondering what I would have to change in this computer to be able to play the next generation games smoothly,like half-life2,doom3,and the battlefield series.Im a newbie in pc hardware...my friend got me this pc 3 years ago,but more the time advance,more the games are demanding.
P4 1,6ghz intel
motherboard:asus p4b(go up to 2.00Ghz processor,cant support DDR)
Ati radeon 9600 128mb
512 mb ram pc133
two 40gig hard-drives Quantum 7200
Yesterday I ordered this:
intel p4 3.0ghz  1mb
asus mobo p4p800-se[s478]
kingston 512Mb ddrDual
But i dont know if it was REALLY necessary.Would the new hardware improve gaming experience,even if I keep the vidcard?
