Hi people,my old pc is starting to struggle a bit when gaming,would it be possible to upgrade or is it time for a new one? the specs are..
intel core 2 duo 6600,
2gb hyperx ram,
Win 7 32 bit,
80gb hard drive(there are 4 other hard drives in the case but i had to disconnect them due to a virus)
Motherboard Asus P5B deluxe,
Antec P180 case.
I mainly use the pc for gaming myself.Steam,Origin etc,i have been looking for a while now to upgrade it but i dont have the time to look in to all the different specs that are available now what with work & 3 children time is not on my side & i find myself getting confused,i had the idea of buying a cheap pc of ebay with an i7 & plenty of ram then just put my graphics in it but pci-e 3 is out?
I was also watching a motherboard but on further investigation it was socket 2011 & the i7 for it started @ about £400.00.
My pc scores on the Windows rating 5.5,my graphics score a 7.3 but it seems the rest of it,chip.ram & hard drive are letting the side down but second hand prices to upgrade it seem to much compared to buying new.
Any advice will be very much appreciated.
