    Well, there's no need for upgrades, but I want to just for some decent performance boost w/o spending too much. Looking at around $400-500 bucks.

    Newer games, especially, bioshock which I tried yesterday, ran fine on medium-low settings. I think either single-core cpu or the ram is bottlenecking.

    So, suggestions?

    PS: specs in sig, with a pos Asus A8N5X mobo
    Biostar XE T5
    i5-750 @ 4.0 GHZ stable (CM Hyper 212)
    2 x 2GB Cosair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHZ
    Radeon 5850 @ 866/1254MHZ
    Intel X25-M in RAID 0
    WD Caviar Black 2TB in RAID 0
    3 x Asus 25.5" VW266H LCD [Eyefinity]

    ok, what you need is to buy 2gigs of ram for just 80 bucks (DDR2 800). Then you'll need a new video card which is around $370?
    You should also get the superclocked version, it should increase your chances of getting a free RMA upgrade if you fuck it up later on and its only what? $20 more for better performance?
    As for the mobo and processor, I think my combo is pretty good but you can get the 5600+ for cheaper if you want. The EVGA mobo also comes with lifetime warranty so if it fucks up, you're insured for life .

    Make sure you get at least v2.0 so you can carry it forward when you reincarnate.

    Wtf is that.

    Is that similar to the sims or something, so I can find it on trackers and dl.


    mmm on topic, so um decided to get another gig or ram, + a new monitor. Too much money to get new mobo + CPU or gfx card. Should last me another 1-2 years then i'll just get new comp.
