because frivilous upgrades will simply annoy u in the future and cost more
get a good socket with good ammount of proc's to play with
and u can easily upgrade things every year
want to stay up to date with games on a budget?
spend no more then 200$ on a graphics card every year or 2 years, works well for me
when the processor gets old, get the next that will fit int he socket for 100-200$
id never spend more then that in my opinion for a processor or vid card
a good mobo is about 100 bucks, simple there
only difference u would have to get the DDR2 most likely, grab a gig there not too expensibve these days =)
Quick question, could my current rig run as a server? How about with a 2.8ghz processor?
My board maxes out at a 2.8 northwood.
