I am looking for some advice on what I can do to upgrade my current pc. Its a Gateway 500c I bought new back in 2001. After playing oblivion on a friends computer, mine feels like a freaking atari system. Anyhow here is what I am dealing with: Gateway 500c Intel P4 1.5 ghz processor Intel for gateway el paso motherboard (socket 478) Here's a link with more info: http://www.skyline-eng.com/catalog.php?rl=0&op=det&ck=42&pk=828 Nvidia Geforce2 MX400 AGP video card 512mb PC133 memory According to the link the motherboard can handle P4 cpu's of 400 mhz fsb, up to 1.5 gigs of memory and a 4X video card. I would like to upgrade the cpu, video and memory capabilities. I was looking at these upgrades, 2.4 or 2.6 P4 400mhz fsb processor, PNY Geforce 6200 128mb DDR 4X AGP video card and add a 256mb module or even run 1.0 gig of memory. These upgrades run under $ 300 total. Would this be a decent way to go? Any advice would help. The rest of the computer is in good shape, drives etc. What about replacing the motherboard, cpu and vid card etc? A better way to go? Let me know what you think. Btw, the comp is used mostly for gaming and internet usage. I am not trying to build a super gaming pc, just upgrade some things for better performance.
