I am upgrading my gaming pc! Need help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello I want to upgrade my computer for it to be able to run games more smoothly instead of just running on low settings all the time.

This is my spec
-ATI Radeon HD 5700 series
-2 x2 550AMD Phenom CPUs(3.1Ghz)
-4gb RAM
-500gb Hard drive space

*I'm not sure what else to include.

So my question is for example a game like Crysis to be able to run it high settings, what do I need to upgrade?
My budget is 500$. Thanks

So im guessing you have something like an Athlon X2 250 dual core CPu or perhaps even an older athlon 64 x2 and a 5770/5750 GPU.

You could just look at getting a new gpu like a 7850, but your CPU will hold it back a fair bit.

I would get a Mobo, CPU, RAM and GPU upgrade as they are all limiting your gaming performance.

I appreciate it that would be over your budget. Start with GPU like 7850 and then work towards a refresh of the CPU/RAM and Mobo.
