hey, I was wondering if anyone would be able to suggest a good upgrade for my PC

i have a p3 450mhz 256ram geforce 2 MX 32meg

SOF2 runs ok but not good enough even with the settings on medium and not running at full graphics, so would it best to upgrade the graphics card or the processor?

which would allow me to put the graphic detail on full and run the game without laggy graphics?

any help would be much appreciated thanks

I would suggest upgrading proccessor and graphics card, but i,d update card first, something like elsa gladiac 511, then getting a proccessor that is intent for games only, because they are not just for games only and have a lot of power. Dont know which one to recommend tho???:D :D :D

I have a AMD athlon XP 1700+, and its absolutely brill. Therefore the 1800+ is even better. Fast, relible, and not too expensive :)

MSI motherboard i dont know about tho. Make sure you get at least 256 MB DDR RAM and a geforce 3 or above with 64MB RAM or more.

I have an Aopen motherboard. Some people say that they are crap, but this would be my second one from them and not a single problem. ( second one not because the first one broke, but i needed a faster processor. The other one is still being used)
