I am looking to upgrade my computer, I think of myself as pretty tech savvy but have never upgrading anything besides my video card. So this is a major upgrade and I plan as best I can and get the most for my money.
I’m looking to spend about $200, 250 max. Im looking to get a new CPU, Motherboard, Sata hard drive and at least 2gb of ram.
After some searching here’s what I got so far as my possibilities.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 Brisbane 2.7GHz 65W Dual-Core Processor $56.99
MD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz 95W Quad-Core Processor $99.99
Western Digital Caviar 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB SATA HD $39.99
I haven’t picked a specific memory yet but I’m expecting to pay less than $30 for 2gigs of DDR 1066.
So how’s the setup looking in your guys opinion? Everything looks compatible and the final price depending on the setup is $180-235.
