RAM would be a cheap and very effective upgrade that will help with everything.

Look up the specs of the board and figure out what speed ram and how much ram it will support and report back.

Im not a noob with computers but im just wondering what will bottleneck a system more? If I would have to change 1 part, what would it be. or is the GPU just not strong enough to play games like SC2 or BFBC2 to its full potential?
