Looking for an upgrade, need some help - Page 2

post #11 of 12
He should not upgrade. The video card would not help much the 8800gt a good card for that rig. the memory is plenty you could upgrade to 4 gig for windows 7 but ddr2 is not cheap when compaired to ddr3. You should recommend a full budget rebuild if he can afford it.
Worse than crack.

I would invest a cheap AM3+ mb slap a athlon II x3 hope to get bonus core
ddr3 1333 in it till BD released and can afford that.
sell the ram and cpu and buy either the high end 6 or low end 8 and you'd be set. save money for a gfx card later.
that 8800 is still a damn good card for what it is and i don't even like nvidia
