Re: Building a PC ... need help
Honestly, That computer is a piece of shit. The Processor is rock bottom, The drive is outdated, and you need more memory.
Best Buy has an E-Machine computer, Granted it's not the greatest name brand it's still ok, But the specs are pretty decent.
For 349 bucks you can get something like this.
AMD Athlon 4000+
1GB of DDR2 Memory, Upgradeable to 2GB
320GB SATA Harddrive 7200Rpm
Windows Vista Home Premium
Available PCI-Express x16 slot
Best Buy also has the 8800 and 9600 Graphics card for anywhere from 200 to 250 bucks..
Say $500 bucks, You have yourself a pretty damn decent computer in all honesty.
Before I built my own computer I had an Athlon 3800+ with 2GB of Memory and a 7900, and that computer would play anything I threw at it pretty well.
