  1. Hey everyone! I wanted to upgrade my computer but I wanted some insight on the hardware I already have, and what I should and shouldn't upgrade. Also any new releases I should buy that are compatible with my computer. Heres some specs


    Windows Vista
    MB: ASUS M3N78 PRO ACPI
    CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+, 3000 Mhz, 2 Cores, 2 Logical Processors
    Video Card:NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT

    500W Power Supply
    3 GB of RAM

    Budget should be around $400 for upgrades. Mainly for gaming. Let me know if I'm missing anything.
