I just checked the requirements for a game I really want and it needs Win 7, 3GB RAM, loads of CPU, and a much better video card than I have.
So I decided I'd start out on a little project I've been tinkering with the past few weeks.
I already have a computer with 2.4GHz, 2GB RAM, 512MB ATI Radeon X1600, 250GB HDD and Win XP.
Things I have:
Windows 7 disc I was going to install on here, but I think I'll wait now.
2GB of RAM
So all I need are these items:
1GB more of RAM.
Could anyone suggest some good video cards to play games like Just Cause 2, Black Ops, new MOH, etc? I'd prefer it to be <$150, it doesn't have to be top-notch AT ALL. Just enough that it supports DX10 and 4.0 pixel shaders.
CHEAP 1GB memory stick?
And a good CPU that would work with those games above. Again, a cheap enough one. Not something up in the hundreds. Doesn't even have to be a dual-core.
The computer I have is a Compaq Presario SR2039X, so you'll know what type of motherboard it is.
And I'll sort out the prices and then save the money and start upgrading.
Or just suggest the specs of the CPU and video card that I'd need, and I'll do the searching.
If this is the wrong board, I apologize.
