I'm trying to spare some money so bare with me here, if i can upgrade this thing to the max of its capabilities it would be quite an achievement for me. System Specs - AMD ATHLON X2 3.6 GHZ 6GB DDR2 DUAL CHANNEL KINGSTON RAM 1.8v 1tb Sata HDD XFX Geforce 7600 GT 256mb Video Card Bios Revision Version 5001 ASUS M2AVM Mother Board Okay so, a couple of questions regarding my Build. I can up the processor to an AM3 but have very limited choices. So i'm going to add a AMD PHENOM 2 X4 945 3ghz Socket AM3 My hyperthreading will be locked at 1,000 - Will this be a performance issue? My Ram isnt running in dual mode, I've got 1gb - 2gb - 1gb - 2gb (In that order) is this an issue? theyre the same brand and voltage. My last question. I want to get a better video card. Maybe an ATI Raden 6890 made by XFX To be frank, Am i going to bottleneck Hard?
