Hi, after installing some demos, I have realised my system aint that good anymore, I usually use it for graphic and web design, but also play CounterStrike: Source alot. It has been ok for that, but after installing the Just Cause Demo and others, I realise it isn't up to much. My graphics card is a X1800GTO PCI-E, so I'm ok there, (im not an enthusiast), but my motherboard is an intel 478 with only pci-e x16 running at x4 and I only have a Northwood 2.2Ghz CPU. For christmas, I'm thinking of upgrading that side of things, I'm only 16 so I don't have loads of money, so can somebody give me an idea of the best Core2 Duo Motherboard for about £50 ($94) that isn't nforce powered, because of my ATI card, SiS, VIA, ATI, whatever, just not nForce. Can anyone give me an idea? Also, Can you use DDR memory in a DDR2 supported board, or does it mean that it is exclusive to DDR2? (Just wondering how much I will actually have to upgrade ) Thanks, Any reply is appreciated.
