A year ago I did lots of research and then proceeded to purchase pieces and parts to build my first computer. Now, since the market has changed again, I am clueless on what to spend the least amount of money on to make my computer perform even smoother. I do spend most of time gaming so please keep that in mind when giving suggestions. Everything was basically a plug and play build, I didnt mess much with bios and currently run on a XP platform. What can I do to speed things up, ie, video cards, Should I buy a 2nd video card to run with my current? Add more ram/memory? Im unsure how to overcloak or know if its an option with me current setup as well, if you suggest that, elaborate or tell me where to look for help. My current build: ~Video card - EVGA 512-P2-N747-LR GeForce 8500 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card ~Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Conroe 2.13GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80557E6420 ~Mobo - EVGA 122-CK-NF63-TR LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard ~Memory - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ ~HDrive - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3160815AS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive I got raidmax tower with plenty of fans and pretty lights ( :haha: ) with 500w power supply. If your upgrades suggestions warrant a bigger supply please let me know. I would hate to fry my new goods. Thanks sooo much for the help, signed noob.
