My computer specifications are in sig, I want to upgrade my computer, im just bored, i want it to be better. I can either upgrade some parts or wait for ages and change it to 939 sli, is it ok to stay with 939? what would you do. I want to play games at reasonable/good settings like BF2 but nothing mad.

I would reccomend upgrading to a FX-57, 2GB Ram & a 7800GTX... but if you want me to be reasonable 3500+, 1GB Ram & X850 XT or 6800GT & maybe a new mobo

Get another 512MB stick of ram to up your total to 1GB, you will see a big performance increase just by doing that. and upgrade that video card to something more up to date like a 6600GT, 6800 or X800.

Your processer is fine, s939 has alot of life to it with Athlon 64's up to the FX57 being available, and since you have a 3000+, you still have alot of upgrade options left.

Oh, i thought you meant that you have 939 now, sorry.

754 you can upgrade to a 3700+ and thats it, its up to you, if you want to spend the money replacing the motherboard/cpu then go to 939. if you don't, then socket 754 will still work good for you, you will still be able to play games at good settings, but the upgradability is much more limited.

how much money are you looking to spend?

Not sure how much that is in dollars but i would go for another 512 stick of ram and a 6600gt I think that would be in your range... i think:rolleyes: And no you would not need another harddrive.

No, but if you would go to 939, you would have to do a repair install of windows for it to recognize your new motherboard and cpu.
