Ok folks, got a few questions about my pc and the future upgrades i'm going to be doing.
I've got an Acer E300 desktop, AMD 3200+ @ 2.01ghz (acer won't allow overclocking
), 1gig of RAM, Leadtek Geforce 6600 256mb and a 160gb SATA 7200 RPM HDD
This is what i'm aiming to do to it:
1. Replace the PSU and Graphics card with a 530watt PSU and an ATI X1800XT 256mb
2. Take out the 2 512mb RAM sticks i have and replace the two slots with 2 1gig sticks (only 2 slots unfortunately, but 2 gig will be plenty)
3. Replace the AMD 3200+ with an AMD 4000+
The specs, when all is complete (in about 4 months) will be:
AMD 4000+ @ 2.4ghz
ATI X1800XT 256mb
2gig DDR400 RAM
I don't have that much money and this is taking everything i'm making for a while (at college also),
So how do you think this will hold up for the future?
I imagine I will replace the motherboard sometime so I can overclock, but that isn't really necessary just yet.
Will replacing the motherboard affect my HDD? because i have alot of important data on it, college work, video editing files and such.
I'm a big gamer, Battlefield 2, World of Warcraft, Counter Strike Source, HL2 and I love my games on full settings!
So anyway, my questions are set out a bit odd, but what's peoples opinions then?
