  1. while im still looking for the solution to my audio problem (other thread if you have something to say) i was just thinking that if i went for an upgrade then what would it be? something thats not hard core gaming but can take new games like GRAW as an example, pretty well with no lag. i guess i m not looking for those beasts, but more that does the job well. i ll give my specs and anyone can tell me what should i upgrade to specifically and if you could mention the advantages of it the upgrade product too that would be even better (dont have to)

    Intel P4 3.0 Ghz prescott
    Gigabyte GA-8S661FXM-775 AGP 8x 3 PCI slots
    1G DDR 400
    random brand 17 flatscreen
    SoundBlaster 5.1 (err, still trying to fix this up)
    Logitech X530 5.1 speakers
    Abit Radeon 9600XT
    A-Link (cheap brand..?) 400W PSU
    Samsung 80G Harddrive

    I live in Australia by the way so pls consider currency. i plan to invest no more than 500AUS with any upgrade that you might consider necessary just so to build a better system that this one. i might disagree (and so may others) but i think ill be getting really good suggestions form you guys.
