I think we're just going to upgrade the video card and get some more ram.
That should be fine until we can afford to get her a better system.

Best bang for the buck would be replacing the celery with a 3.0 northwood if you can find one. My daughter's rig is running one with 2g of ram and an HD2600xt and you'd really be surprised, the old system still has legs and she keeps up with us just fine on cod4 and WAW

I'd like to get this thread going again...
Anyone have any pc3200 DDR SDRAM for sale? Or a link to some at a good price?
I think I'm going to get a Radeon X1650 Pro card.
Maybe I'll replace the processor, but not likely...
We don't want to spend much money on this.

Anyone used this ram?
NCIX.com - Buy Buffalo Select DD4003-1G/BR 1GB 1X1GB PC3200 DDR400 CL3 184PIN DIMM Memory - DD4003-1G/BR In Canada.


*edit*
I don't think I should have opened this thread in the Video Card section...
Can it be moved to somewhere more relevant?
