I am looking to upgrade my computer a little bit, being that it has been almost 3 years since I first built it and it just cant keep up like I want it to anymore. Ok i'm running an AMD right now and I think i'm gonna stick with AMD. You can see the basics of my setup right now, it was decent 3 years ago when I built it. You can see i'm running a Athlon XP 2500+, that is running at the stock 1.8 Ghz, the 512mb of pc3200 ram and the mobo. Ok my new plan is to get a processor that is in the 2.2-2.6 range with 1.5 Gb of PC 3200Ram, I plan to keep the video card for now, though I will probably upgrade it too. I would like to stay under 300 or so dollars, I only need 1GB of ram because I plan on using my existing stick of 512mb. I just need to know what is the best processor and mobo for the price range? The mobo has to have an AGP slot. My new setup will have a good name heatsink and better cooling, so slight overclocking is a possibilty. Keep in mind I'm gonna gaming on this so I need somthing that can keep up pretty well.
