My current PC, well, SUCKS. Hasn't bee upgraded at all since I got in in '98, except for a new 20 gig hard drive from the old 4 gig hard drive, and 64 MB of RAM. Finally time to modernize it, so I can play some games. I at least want to run World of Warcraft with some great quality, with no lag. I went to NewEgg and whipped this up: Motherboard: $49.99 BIOSTAR NF325-A7 Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250 ATX AMD Motherboard 5 PCI Slots Max 2 GB memory supported Not too sure if this is the one for me. I need help here. Processor: $89.99 AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Orleans 2.2GHz Socket AM2 Processor Model ADA3500CNBOX Suicide Overclock jump reports of 3GHz, working stable. I'm pretty confident this is a good choice for me. I wanted to get a much more powerful Processor, but I just don't have that money. Graphics Card: $89.99 POWERCOLOR X800GTO256MBDDR3 Radeon X800GTO 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card Apparently runs CounterStrike perfectly. Built-in fan, I believe. DirectX 9 and OpenGL 2 support. This one, I thought, was a really incredible deal for that price. I'm not ENTIRELY sure yet, but I think it's looking good. Hard Drive - $94.99 Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM Greatest Hard Drive deal I've ever seen. Around $100 bucks for 320GB of storage. I can go lower if my budget demands, though. DVD Burner: $33.99 SAMSUNG 18X DVD±R DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write, LightScribe Technology Black IDE Model SH-S182M/BEBN - OEM Just your average DVD burner. I didn't know they were this cheap, so I'm a bit worried. I REALLY need a functional burner. Total: $358.95 What do you guys think? I can salvage my old Sound Card, Case, and Power Supply from my current PC. I think. How much power will I need to run all this? Will I need a new supply? I'm unsure what my current one puts out. I'm also not sure if my sound card will be compatiable with the new motherboard. Will my case even fit this? It's an old, clunky Compaq Presario case. The old nasty ones you see at the library . I just don't have the cash for a new one. Alright, that's it. Is all my hardware compatiable with eachother? Also, how can I check my current system specs exactly?
