Ok I'm not sure if this is in the right section but bit-tech seems to have spawned so many sections that I figured some one would read it and be able to help. I'm trying to decide if I should get a cheap (as cheap as possible) dual core systemat present I have P4 3GHZ CPU that apparently a second core from what I've been told something about hyper-threading ? if that makes any sense 2 GB PC3200 DDR 256mb ATI Radeon 9600 / X1050 Series (at least that's what device manager says anyway) a Asrock P4i65G motherboard. I had planned on updating the graphics card next but some one I know has just said that updating the graphics card is pointless as the next upgrade after that would be a motherboard and that would mean that I had to get a whole new system due to the pci-e slot, newer memory etc? So what do you think upgrade the GFX card or try and get a cheap new system The pc is mainly used for guild wars and downloading etc but its shortly going to be used for hammering left 4 dead on a regular basis however next year (september) I start a university degree in Computer Game Design so it would need to be able to deal with that but I have been told that I'd be able to get a new pc cheaper via the university when I start so I'm kinda of dithering as to do I or don't I get a new system so basically HELP!!!!!
