|Hello all. I sincerly apologize becuase I know this question is as redundant as any question can be but I have trying to do my diligence within the threads here but really havnt been able to find a thread with soemone who has the same computer as I do.|
I guess my computer is probably 3-5 yrs old I honestly dont recall the age and dont know how to check. But below will descrive my computer..
[b]Processor[/b] - AMD ATHLON(tm) 64 X2 Dual core processor 5000+ 2.6 ghz
[b]Memory[/b] - (RAM) = 3.0GB
[b]System Type[/b] - 32 Bit Operating System
OS = Windows Vista
[b]Power supply[/b] I upgraded to I believe 600 watts maybe more?
[b]Graphics Card[/b] I upgraded a year ago to a Nvidia GeForce GT220 = 1024MB DDR2
I have recently started at the ripe old age of 39 to play FPS games like Black Ops and now the "Big" one Battlefield 3
right now all of you who know computers and who know anything about BF3 has already probably crindged.
I have no troubles running Black Ops nor the new Modern Warfare 3 saying that I cannot say for sure that everything is on "high" or "ultra" settings.
I can even run Battlefield 3 but not very well. Ive managed to level up to Level 25 and eww its been brutal. Im pretty sure everything is set as low as it will go and am having as much fun with it as I can with what I have.
Now I am to the point that I want to upgrade. I cannot afford a new computer but I can afford to spend say $200-300 dollars on upgrading. A few fellow gamers have told me to get the Nvidia GTX 560 and Im in business but they dont really say much more than that and happening upon this sight there seems to be a wealth of information and very knowledgeable people here and would really appreciate some of your advice on what maybe I should do to upgrade? How upgradable is my computer? etc..
Any guidanace would be great and please by all means steer me toward what and where I should purchase any upgradable hardware? I was actually looking at this website and it appears you can purchase product through here?
I am your average Noob type computer guy who knows just enough to be dangerous and install most computer components. So Im not a total idiot when it comes to computers and I have searched through a few threads or forums here to try to come to my own conclusion but I really need an expert to guide me.
Thanks a bunch guys and gals I appreciate your help and may your days be full of smiles smiles smiles!
If anyone has any tips,hints or tricks to get or set my computer up to run better with what I have now until I can get feedback from the community on what route I should take I welcome that help as well and am humbly gracious!
