    Yet another "Computer Upgrade" Thread - YACUT

    I'm planing on upgrading my currant configuration and was wondering if this would be an OK set-up(NOTE: I already own a hard drive and a power supply):

    http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820211012

    I'm also on a low budget, so this is about as far as I can go.

    I think you would be better off with a dual core processor, they can be had for about the same as the processor you linked and are like twice as fast ... Also they don't get as hot ...

    with a motherboard that supports it like:

    Or similar.

    or perhaps:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131022

    Also this:

    Memory is faster and a good brand, for about the same price as the A-data ...

    Just ask if you have any questions ...!

    Does anyone happen to know if I can pay in increments on Newegg, if so I could probably afford a little more.
