Okay so i got a second hand packard bell ISTART 1379 and I'm looking to upgrade it. The specs are:

Packard Bell BV RC415 MOBO Socket 775
Intel Celeron D CPU 3.46GHz, L2 Cache 512KB,
1.536MB DDR2 533MHZ RAM,
NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS 256MB PCI-E.

Ive have searched google and found that my processor isn't much good. Does anyone know of a good quality processor at a good price that can handle the requirements of todays games?

Thanks

Connor

An AMD Radeon HD 5770 is what I use. It's a fantastic GPU, paired with the right CPU of course.

You're going to have to swap out many things to get that system to play today's, and tomorrow's, upcoming games. If you go AMD, I suggest at least a Phenom II X4 paired with a 990FX motherboard.

Also DDR2 ram is outdated now, DDR3 is much faster. AMD is a lot cheaper the Intel.

Yes those parts would let you play Crysis 2 but probably on low-medium settings.

Could anyone suggest a mobo that supports ddr3 and is about the same price as the one I picked. And on games-debate.com it said the rig would play it at medium/high :/
