Hm, I think I'd rather invest in a new good system.Maybe you could go for a CPU and GPU upgrade and use that machine to play on lower resolutions, maybe a maximum of 1680x1050.
My thoughts exactly!Also, good move saying you want to keep discussion open in this thread as opposed to PMs, some people PM me but I really prefer people being open to more opinions, helps to make sure you don't get ripped off or anything. More opinions is always better!
Yeah, I am pretty ready to let go of the AMD computer. It never hurts to check whether there are any parts that can be salvaged, though. There's no point in saving the memory, either? If so, has it got something to do with the fact that it's DDR2 and not DDR3? Since it's my understanding that the amount of RAM is in itself enough for today's gaming computers.Honestly though, everything else in that Dell is just ancient stuff you shouldn't worry about anymore, it really won't do enough for you to bother anymore. If you have the budget for it, I'd build a whole new computer to replace this and then with the Intel i5-750 I would just upgrade the GPU as that CPU is still pretty decent. You could probably also get away with sticking in an SSD if you want some added speed and snippiness overall to that rig, but that I'd only suggest after you build the full new rig and stick in a new GPU.
