I need some advice on ether updrading or new build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi every one i would like to start off by saying merry xmas.

I would like to know if i should upgrade my system or just start a new build.
My 940 is used for gaming and watching movies/Tv and vpc

games i play would be sc2/Steam /Mu online from time to time.( I use vpc for this).
So i would like to upgrade my system to last 2 years is this possible??If it is what parts should I upgrade ? taking in consideration that i don't want to pay more than 250-300 $ to upgrade the system.

Now if its not possible what computer should i build with a budget of 800-900$

thanks in advance RustyNails

So you've been on this forum for all most a half a day, and nobody has solved your problem? Unbelievable!

I think your question is a little more complex than you might think. I know nothing about AMD MB/CPU's so I can't help.

Have patience, some one will offer advice eventually. It might take a whole day.

and Merry Christmas.

I'd shop used at this point. Anything you buy new would be sub-par for the coin, and you'd be drooling for better gear come mid-2011 when AMD releases new CPUs.

I'd consider a better GPU first as that is so out-of-date...although SC2 tends to be CPU bound and not GPU bound.
