Need to upgrade PC: Suggestions?
Okay i know this is my second thread today but i thought i might aswell ask.
My Specs at the moment:
AMD Athlon 2.2ghz Socket A
1gb DDR RAM [400mhz]
GeForce 6800 128mb [AGP]
My problem is that there is something dreadfully wrong with my CPU, and it's been getting worse for ages. I've done all i can think of [virus checks and defragging and suchlike] but it just gets worse. Somebody put it down to 'CPU degradation'
Being on a tight budget i can only afford so much, but i really need a new motherboard and CPU. However, i do not wish to spend £100 on a CPU and £100 on a motherboard that is AGP, to earn enough money after to buy a new GPU and have to upgrade my Motherboard to PCI-E for another £100.
Is it possible to get decent motherboards that are socket 939 and support both AGP and PCI-E so i can swap later? I've browsed my usual sites i'd buy from but i can't find anything.
Somebody might ask why i don't just get my motherboard, CPU and GPU altogether; it's because i'm on a tight budget. And i don't see the point in saving for longer for all three as i do not see any point in upgrading a 6800 to a 7800 just yet, as the 6800 is more than capable at the present time.
