So in the very near future I will be planning on upgrading my 10 year old system, its been a great companion over the years but it has gotten to the point where I need a speedier system
My current set up:
DFI Lanparty Ulta-D Socket 939 Updating
AMD Athlon 3200+ Socket 939 Updating
250 GB Sata Hard Drive as Master Recycle
2 TB Sata Hard Drive as Slave Recycle
4 x 1GB pc3200 Updating
Geforce 8400 GS Updating/ Recycle???
Samsung IDE DVD burner Recycle
NZXT Nemesis ATX Case w/ stock 400W PSU Updating
Microsoft Wireless Mouse & Keyboard Recycle
& I use my 32" HDTV as my monitor...
Was my first build & had plenty of good times with it
My budget for replacing CPU, Motherboard, Ram, Case, PSU, Video Card would be from $500 USD up to $750 USD
I primarily use my computer for leisure, surf the web, facebook, netflix, viewing Hi Def videos from hard drive. Noticeable lag/delay/ stuttering when trying to play 1080p content from hard drive. I dont use photoshop, dont play games on it. I dont plan on overclocking, dont see the sense of it in my situation. I do plan on using it to help fix my friends computers, so having at least 1 or 2 IDE connections in the motherboard would be needed. Along with a PSU that has enough IDE & SATA power connetions. Any way I can get in on that Intel i3/ i5 action? Once i start ordering parts I plan to get them from newegg. Thanks for all your help!
