Which parts are good for me?

  1. Hello, I'm thinking of upgrading my PC to run GTA IV on possibly High or Medium settings with smooth FPS, I've got a total of 310$ saved up at the moment but I have no idea which parts fit with my current motherboard, etc.

    I've found 2 good links on CPU's and GPU's and I would appreciate it if you guys could help me select the best parts for me without going over 310$ if possible.

    P.S. My CPU has a LGA775 sockets.

    Your motherboard can handle a single PCI-e x16 graphics card. Due to the fact of the age of your system you will be limited as to what you can install. Are you using onboard graphics or do you have a separate graphics card? If a card what is your current one?

    Also, what games are you looking to play?

    You need to list the rest of your specs, I.e. CPU, RAM, GPU, PSU.
