Hello all Haven't upgraded in yonks (except for a recent 22" monitor) and I mean I am still running my oc'd 2500 xp mobile cpu in an a7v880 mobo with 1gig ddr ram plus 7600gt gfx and soundblaster sound. I know, I know it's pitiful but that's why I am here. My plan was to go the Asrock 4CoreDual-SATA2 R2.0 (agp and ddr ram) route paired with the E6300 and just toss in my current ram plus gfx card for a cheap and cheerful interim upgrade for about £115. However my gfx with that mobo seems to be a bad combo for crashing also net searches show issues with Windows 7 Realizing that using my pretty capable 'till now' 7600gt agp gfx card to move forwards is a dead plan. I have set myself a budget of ~£250 (could stretch a little more if slight monetary increment nets better performance) so I realize my options may be limited. Performance, 'game-wise' (Looking forward to Modern Warfare 2) together with multitasking and oc potential with as much future proofing (cpu, gfx, ram and hdd upgrading) as is possible on a budget is what I am looking for. If it is indeed possible. Ok! I already have a tower, psu and (IDE) HDD what next?
