The processor in my comp recently went out so I'm interested in upgrading a bit. I have $550 and all I need to get with that is the motherboard, procesor, and windows OS. My question is what should I get that gives me the most bang for my buck and doesn't go over the $550 budget? I play games on this comp, nothing like crysis but stuff like NWN 2 and WOW.
I was thinking of getting
What I have to put in to this comp is
2 x 160gb hard drives
1 x 9600 gt video card
16x multiformat dual-layer DVD±RW
9-in-1 media card reader
500w power supply
10/100Mbps integrated Ethernet LAN (RJ-45 port)
as far as memory I can get whatever type I need to go with the MB outside of te $550 budget.
