Need suggestion on a upgrade!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i need suggestions on a upgrade!
I am upgrading on this comercial bought computer : Compaq sr1960ap

Since i am no computer genius, i need some help whether i could upgrade to a better processor with/ without changing the mobo.

Current system: : PentiumD 925 (P) DC 3.0 GHz
Motherboard Name: RC410-M
Ram: 2gb ddr2
Graphics card owercolour amd 5670 1 gb

I know this is a FREAKISHLY joke computer, but it still could play mw2 at low-med without aa or anistropic filtering. I need a better cpu and most likely a better mobo and hard drive, my current graphics card is good enuff for me since i wouldn't be play high on a system like that!

Anyhelp would be appreciated, my budget would be about 300 and below!

I would buy this http://www.overclock.net/main-compon...g-rig-4-a.html

Get the mobo and cpu its still a dual core but is better than the pentium D

And get a q6600 on the cheap in a few months time.

Get a hyper 212+ with the money you saved

This is a good motherboard for overclocking: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128487
Gigabyte is a good company for making motherboards.
