I have a cpu (duh), but its rather old. You can see all of my specs on the side, but ill fill you guys in just incase. AMD Opteron 165 dual core with AC64 Freezer Heatsink LP NF4 Series, with NVIDIA NForce4 chipset Mushkin Blackline DDR 2x1GB PC3200 ATI Radeon HD 3850 2 WesternDigital 250 GB IDE HDD 1 WesternDigital 80 GB SATA3 HDD FSB Group 350W PSU 2 Random fans A generic CPU Case Windows 7 Ultimate And a Magnavox 16" monitor I've overclocked it to 2.39 GHz, so i dont want to upgrade the processor unless i can get either stock over 2.4, or overclock something up to like 2.8~ Knowing what i have in my CPU, what would you guys recommend i upgrade? is there anything in specific that i really need to improve? i know i have low RAM, and want to grab something better there, but idk where to even begin. Im not paying for it myself, so im not going to be asking for a 1000$ new system kinda thing, just a few parts to bump my system up, with a 250$ MAX price tag. Any advice would be great, but PLZ be more specific than just saying "get a better processor" im looking for details of what to get, not generalities. Thanks everyone for all the help, and i hope i can get this thing running better soon!
