Hey, I tell us that I have a PIII 500 with a G-Force2 mx400. But that PC was history and I want a upgrade... But I have my duds about mother, micro and video.
Could you give me some ideas??????

You must be aware that the faster the processor the better the processing power of your PC.
Also for gameplay the better (more expensive) the graphics card the better the display and frame rate will be. etc...etc...

Your decision is really:- "How much can I afford to spend?"
Then you can begin to look at the specs of the systems in your price range.

Me personally, I'd build my own, but that is another story.

Hello Foxmonter,

It really all comes out to how much you wish to invest. Are you willing to give US$2000? or just US$800 ?

It makes a big difference but for about US$1000 you could get a nice system, not the best out there but good.

AMD XP2500 Barton
Corsair XMS 512MB PC3700
Asus Nforce2 Mobo
ATI Radeon 9700 PRO
WD Spec. Ed. 80 GB HD 7200 RPM
Lite-On CDRW/DVD

Si quieres te escribo en Espaņol tambien.

try a place like ibuypower or cyperpowersystem, or any of a number of other places now that have system configurators online and select all the stuff u want. if price really doesnt matter than just go for the second or third most expensive CPU (unless price *really* doesnt matter, in which case you can get the $300 speakers, neon seethru case etc.) and MB, the max RAM and a 9700pro or better.

Or even dare i say it Dell, used them for years , they might be a bit more expensive but on 2 pc's over 7 years i have had to reformat once....fingers crossed, I will gladly pay for that reliablity /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
