Upgrade or stay?
I am currently using a Dell Optiplex GX280 (3 GHz, Pentium 4, Win XP SP2), the really small and slim version. I have 2GB of ram (Both slots are full) and I have an ATI Radeon HD 4650 hooked up to my PCI-Express slot, but the card is so big that I have to keep my system open at all times,and it is very loud when its open.
Anyway, I have been thinking about upgrading. Totally. The GX280 has served me well, but I want a more gaming friendly system, or at least one I can add to a lot. I am looking at a 3.2 GHz Optiplex GX280. It is the larger version, so I can fit my Radeon in without having to keep my PC open. It also has more RAM slots, so I can add to my 2 GB easier. It is $250.
So should I get this PC, or should I save up more in order to get one of them newer PC's, with those beastly Processors and such. I really don't think I need one, cuz the games I play on my PC don't need too much. (Portal, Doom, Quake, possibly Star Craft 2 when it comes out).
Or should I stay...
