but here we go anyway. some spec help would be great please. and some compatability checking. current bits I could do with keeping (or replaceing if needed) arctic cooling T2 case (will this be suitable for all new stuff, i.e. 939 mobos?) 1 gig (2 x 512) pc2700 ram (i know I know, but could do with a cheap upgrade here) 512 (2x256) psc3200 ram (spare stuff got for a bargin, not using yet) agp x800pro (could sell for capital raising) so, after blowing up my dfi infinity board (might sell as broken on the bay) I am thinking of hitting an upgrade. want to go 64 bit. want to do it cheap for now, but over the next 3months really get it up to spec. so.....i need mobo, chip, pci-e graphics card, and I need to be able to use my OLD ram (1 gig would be best) , and OLD ata133 HD's etc. I play WoW but dont get time for many other games. the x800 eats WoW so something similar or better really. and I would like to spend 400quid (not including the sale of any old stuff) is this possible? i can easily stretch out though if a close figure can be reached. or should I just bin the whole lot and buy a prebuilt titan from OCuk to save all the hassle? many thanks in advance, i will update once I have found my idea of components that I would like to use. edit...maybe going x2 would be an option?, as I am always playing with some kind of music software, plenty of tracks. Could do with some processor power.
