upgrade Oo?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Haya,

just a little question this time . It's my birthday yay , and i wanted to buy an upgrade component for my computer. What do you guys think would be the best thing i should buy for my computer? The only thing i do with my computer is gaming and listening to music, so maby that should narrow the choices down a bit.

Let the suggestions begin.

Well i would reccomend that you get either some new games, or some new CDs, unless you have the cash to put up for a new VGA.

Sell the cards you have and purchase an 8800GTS with the money from your birthday and the money you make from the selling of the 7900GS'.

You will then have 1 card that is urgradable to SLI at some point, with more power in its 1 core than you have in your 7900s combined.

You will also have DX10, so you can be a lucky bugger and play Crysis

MaK

Oh, and
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

Thanks a lot MaKa .

I was thinking though: I realy like rpg's, but all the nice new rpg's cost money, so thats kinda out of the question for me. Maby i would do good with a new processor, or maby a new sound card or hdd for a raid0 setup?
