I have been going strong on my old amd 3200 for as long as i can remember now but every upgrade reminds me that soon its time to do the mobo/cpu/ram/graphics overhaul. Well now is finally the time as i was debating whether to squeeze more juice out of this old dog with a ram upgrade but realizing it wouldnt even take the amount i wanted to put in enough is enough! Id been avoiding it cos i feel lost now as i have no idea what the current trends are with all this multicore this and that, pci express- same form factor but different shit wtf? and i recently realized sata is not just one standard but now in its third iteration and isnt always backwardly compatible. So could you guys give me some advice on a good setup for medium/fair price. i play games very rarely but would like it to be capable of that when required tho i think even the most entry level will do fine for those requirements because even my current setup handles most games satisfactorily so any upgrade will just be a bonus. mostly i want fast response on browser/multiple windows and for zenno. thats about it, the rest my vps's can do. so i imagine a decent cpu and decent amount of ram for lots of browsers (one current complaint with my current pc is it seems to get really chuggy later in the day after a full day of firefox browsing). ill have to get a new graphics card as agp is out of the window afaik, just a entry level one will do, hard drive i know about as i recently studied those. so i guess motherboard and cpu are the main things i want guidance on plus anything else maybe i havent thought of i might require for the upgrade. ive got a decent antec psu, it was decent tho i dunno if it will be up to task today, forgot what power it is. would have to check.
