What I have: Dell Dimension 3000 Motherboard without AGP or PCI-E slots 256mb PCI Radeon 9250 video card 2.8ghz Pentium 4 processor 512mb DDR RAM What I want: New motherboard that is cheap but upgradable New case to fit said motherboard New video card so I can play games like Battlefield 2 and Neverwinter Nights 2 Probably a second RAM chip so I can upgrade to a gig. What I am asking: What kind of motherboard and case can I get for cheap? Obviously the main feature I am looking for is just PCI-E slots and that the motherboard fits in the case, and 4 or more RAM slots. I can't figure out how to tell if my current processor and power supply will fit the new motherboard. Is 1 gig of RAM enough these days? 512 has been doing me just fine with games like Half Life 2, Call of Duty 2, FEAR, etc.... What video card do I need? I'm looking for the cheapest one that will work with games like Neverwinter Nights 2, Battlefield 2, and similarly demanding games. The main problem I seem to be having with my current graphics card is that it is not compatible with Pixel Shaders 2.0. And that not only is it an older card but PCI is also less efficient.
