I still don't understand you at all though. You can build an amazing budget system that can max out most games and would be literally around 300X more powerful than your machine for only $400. If you are really a celebrity you should be able to fork out a measly $400. You should stop wasting money on your old/bad computer. From what I have read with this 8600 that you might buy you would have wasted around $250 on your old computer all together when you could of bought a new motherboard/processor and 2GB of DDR2.
Simply put, there is a time when staying back technology wise makes no sense and is more retarded and a waste of money/time than just upgrading to something newer and cheaper.
You can buy lots of food, clothing, or w/e with that
