Default Wheyy!! Just got some new stuff!

Well, came into some money few days ago, so what better thing to spend it on than my computer...

I just bought another 2x512 DDR400 RAM, and a 250GB SATA HDD, OS is so much faster!

So system specs stand at

Pentium 4 @3.50Ghz, 2GB DDR400 RAM, 250GB SATA HDD + 180IDE storage, Still stuck with my 5500 though..which nicely brings me to my next question...

Can anyone find any OK video cards, in the UK, for about 100...a 256MB memory one pref - I was looking at this, not sure though..

Thanks

No offense dude, but with those specs, your lookin like your pretty much maxed (what is needed at least) except for the graphics card, if your lookin to max out completely your going to want to upgrade your GC.

I know its an out-dated system, but with a new decent card, it could be ok for gaming.

Ive got a PCI-e slot, so I can evan go for like a 6600GT or something, or the AGP version...I dnorr..I got like 100 at the moment, Im guna save though..
