Upgrades £ to be spent!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, I have received my refund on my Net-Book that died on me. This means I have some money that has to be spent! Now I plan to buy a 42 Inch TV and I will have around £180 that is left over.

Currently, have this system:

Motherboard - Biostar TA790GX
CPU - AMD X2 7750BE
GPU - XFX HD 4830 512mb
PSU - OCZ ModXStream Pro 600w Modular
RAM - 2X 2GB Corsair (I think its DDR2 800mhz)
HDD - 500Gb 5600 RPM job. Can't remember the make.
CASE - Thermal-take Element G
-------------------------------

I understand that it isn't allot of money for upgrades, but what would be best to be getting? New CPU and maybe some DDR3 Ram? Or perhaps splash it all on a new GPU? My monitor is a 24inch Full HD one if that matters at all.

Appreciate any help!

if u want to play on full HD , new CPU and GPU is what u will need , ram will not do major impact for that money
if you can get something like Phenom II x2 555-565 or Athlon II x4 and HD 5770-6850 that would suit you well

Phenom II x4 920/940 should be able to run on your mobo. HD5770/GTX460 would be the minimum I'd recommend for 1080P.
