It dont think i need to buy much for it...I already have an athlon 64 x2 5000+ processor, i have 2 gigs of RAM, and an NVIDIA 8300 gs. I was thinking about adding 2 more gigs of RAM in my pc and buying a new/better graphics card...what else should I do? Any more info if needed...processor runs at 2.6 and it's a Dell Inspiron with, what i would say, a lot of room to add more shit... ok, bus speed is 200.9 MHZ
Your processor is fine.
if you don't know bus speed is how fast the information travels between your various pieces of hardware (cpu, ram, video etc).
so basically you can have the best components but you're ultimately restricted to the speed of how fast that information travels between those components
As for Video, you have a PCI-e. Use this guide.
The 8800GT is great for $200 - get the 512MB or 1GB version. THe 256MB sucks. Get XFX or BFG brands as they come factory Overclocked.
The 8800 or better yet the 9800 Nvidia cards kick butt. Be sure to consider the power supply requirements of high end video cards as upgrading the PSU is commonly required when going to high end cards.
Get a 8800GT 512MB version
or better yet
get a Radeon HD 3870 or 3870 X2
If you have money left get another 1GB for extra performance
GeFORCE 8800GT-about $130 to $200
Radeon HD 3870-around $130 to $200
Radeon HD 3870 X2-aroud $170 to $500
CompUSA.com sells alot of stuff cheap.
