  1. Trying to keep life in my PC for a little bit longer. New to the whole upgrading thing, so looking for some advice.

    Here is my current setup, the power supply not sure what make but have listed watts. I am planning to upgrade my machines RAM to 4GB as well, don't know if that makes a difference?

    1. Motherboard - Dell model: OF4991
    2. Graphic interface -Nvidia FX5200 128MB RAM AGP version 3 8x
    3. Memory - dual channel ddr 1024MB
    4. CPU - Intel Pentium 4
    5. CPU Speed -2.8GHz
    6. Power Supply Make/Model - ??
    7. Watt output/Amperage - 250W

    As for budget well and use....budget for parts is around £50-£60 and its used for FPS and some RTS games, mostly online FPS. Looking to play COD4.

    Any advice would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance.

    250 watts psu. Maybe you can look into a 2600xt or something. you're not going to play cod4 at a very good pace with an agp interface.

    I highly doubt you'll be able to play COD4 on that budget.
    Your PSU, RAM, CPU and graphics card all need an upgrade.
    Basically, you need a new system my friend.

    I did have a feeling it was a lost cause but had to at least ask. Thanks anyway guys. I'll just have to stick to old games for now.

    well you could just look for a low end graphics card if your on a budget, i must say you will NEED a better power supply if your going to want to play high end games tho.
