Hi all this is my first post!
Was just looking for some help on upgrading my current system with some new parts.
When I bought my computer it was a standard Advent T9608. Since then I have maxed out the RAM i can fit to it, 4gb I think off the top of my head. Added a second disk drive and fitted an ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card.
I am now looking to fit a new processor, and harddrive. I've done a fair bit of research and I need to upgrade my old motherboard to fit a decent processor seeing as dual core ones aren't that good anymore!
From my research I've found the best motherboard and processor to suit me seem to be:
-Asus M489GTD PRO, AMD 890GX, AM3, 2 PCI-EX16, Onboard DSUB DUI HDMI, RAID, 8 CHHD sound, ATX.
-AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4GHz Black Edition AM3 Socket L2/L3 8MB
Also any harddrive I should go for in particular? Although it doesn't seem to matter to much. Would those be good choices? Would they be compatible with what I already have? Can you recommend better? Any adivce would be great! I origionally only wanted to spend up to Â£100 (harddrive included) but after looking into this more it seems to get anything that's actually worth it I will have to spend up to Â£150+. I would love to get this number as low as possible though without compromising on quality. With my current choices I'm looking at around Â£225. My computer is mainly used for my music, gaming and using the internet. Although I do still use it for other things too, but nothing strange.
Cheers all, any advice would be great! Cam
