What should I upgrade in my current system? ( been away for awhile so bare with me)

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Well Iam just having issues for the last 2 years with this setup no one could help me even techs in Real life.


I wont go into it but it just stops responding and a pic says on down right corner saying it stopped responding and recovered successfully..

Anyways, So now i decided to upgrade what ever i can and what really worth upgrading. I have no budget to be honest. Because iam gonna get it from the local website for classifieds that way i could bargin with people.



P.S. AM looking for HIGH PERFORMANCE. I dont play HIGH END GAMES nor I multitask, or care about any high quality games.



Edit 1: I want to upgrade mobo lets start with that. No Budget as long as it is better than my current mobo by miles....! but i would say budget around 150 200 let me know please.




Thank you.

wait a minute
if you're looking for just high performance then there is no need to upgrade your gpu
get a new:
ddr3 mother board lga 1336
ddr 3 ram 1600mhz +
i7 950
and that should do it

edit: but then again, we have to know your budget
