Wanting to upgrade sig rig

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well I have had this system for a few months and I feel I need to upgrade some components.

Which of the components in my sig rig are in most need of upgrade because I have no idea where to start and not just build a new rig.

All input appreciated

I'd grab another 2GB of ram, and a GTX 260. Have you overclocked that E7200?

what do you want to do with the computer? gaming= maybe a 4850 graphics or GTX 280 matters on your budget and if multi tasking and/or compressing etc. better cpu maybe a quad and more ramb maybe 4 or even 8 gb it always matters on your budget?

What do you feel is lacking? Because your current card should be fine for your display. However, upgrading to a GTX260 would be a nice upgrade. However, unless you are going to upgrade to a 64 bit OS, don't bother with the memory (that said, it is quite cheap).
