Good morning guys
So currently, i have:
AMD Athlon XP 3500 2.2GHz
MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum motherboard
ATI Radeon 9600Pro
2GB DDR1 RAM
As you can see, this system is becoming really outdated and it has done me wonders for all this time but now its become apparrent that HD videos just arent able to play on this. I have been offered as a gift for christmas some new components. So i was thinking that i could perhaps get a new CPU, RAM and Motherboard but their limit is £150 however i could knock in £50 myself if there would be a huge benift.
I am wondering if someone could help me provide some guidance of a good setup i could buy which is best bang for buck and value performance for that £150-£200 budget. I would like at this time an onboard graphics card
due to the fact i rarely game and at present, it isnt really a dire necessity, i could buy that at a later date. Other than that, there isnt really anything else im in need off except for the best performance possible
I currently have a case, hard drives and PSU which i hope to re use and my hard drives are Sata.
The PSU i hope is future proof to support the new motherboards because i know they have new pins and connectors:
COOLER MASTER iGreen Power 500Watt
Any help and suggestions you can offer i would be so greatful for your time
thank you for your help
