Or would it be better just to upgrade my own?
I have a 2002 Windows xp Compaq
AMD athlon xp 3000+2.16ghz with 2gb of ram.
Videocard : ATI RADEON 9550 AGP 256mb internal dag 400mhz
I was thinking of upgrading my ram and video card hoping that would help run Starcraft 2 a little more smoothly.
The ram I could get in there easily but when I was looking at video cards, there wasn't a great selection. It seems that all the newer good video cards aren't AGP but some other type. My brother in law told me i'd need a new motherboard to get a new nice video card and he wasnt sure if my cpu could handle a new motherboard... I have no clue what motherboard and cpu are really...(I know what a motherboard is I just don't know anything about them), the only thing i've ever done was install ram and a new video card on my computer before.
I can't really afford much more than 500 right now so if I did spring for a new comp it'd need to be cheap. I wouldn't mind buying a new comp and upgrading the video card and ram in it over the next few months. Or I wouldn't mind upgrading my own computer. I just want to get the most out of my money. Any advice is appreciated!
Oh! and my goal is to be able to play starcraft 2 on good graphics and when Diablo 3 comes out I would like to be able to play that game as well. Thanks so much!!
