So i been playing games like Battlefieldplay4free , LoL etc. I play them at low resolutions and lowest Quality but they look really bad almost like a PS1 game. and they run at like 16 fps. And it usually lags when i spawn resulting in repeated spawn kills.


I can't afford a new PC but could you tell me what to upgrade in this machine and how much it will be in £££ but please keep it under £140.


Also if you think i should save that is a impossible task it would take me 4 years to get  £200 on top of my £140 (And i ain't waiting all ready waited 6 years!)


I been saving my pocket money since i was 8 to get to £140 now im 14 and need something with better performance.


So here is my specs:


Operating System
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ 62 °C
Brisbane 65nm Technology
2.00GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 328MHz (5-5-5-15)
ASUSTek Computer INC. Acacia (Socket AM2 ) 40 °C
X19 (1280x1024@60Hz)
ATI Radeon HD 2350 (MSI) 54 °C
298GB Hitachi HDT725032VLA SCSI Disk Device (SATA) 54 °C
Optical Drives
No optical disk drives detected
Realtek High Definition Audio

 With only 2 GB of RAM you could be paging a good bit, so I'd add another 2 GB.  RAM is pretty cheap.


Good luck.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

I looked up your GPU, Motherboard, and CPU and you're barely scraping by on the minimum system requirements for LoL, and you don't quite make the cut for battlefield 4.

I went to Newegg and started doing generic searches on the three items and found some results that should fit within or just out of your  £140 budget (Only by about + £10- £30) So if you go there I'm sure you'll be able to find what you're looking for.
NOTE: Make sure the components you buy are compatible with your motherboard!!! I looked up your motherboard and it seems that it is only able to support up to 4GB of RAM. Best advice, If you have the manual for it, make sure you go over it thoroughly before making any purchases.


Below I linked the specifications so you can see exactly what the developers say you need in order to run the game in order to help you with your decision process.

If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask.

BattlefieldPlay4free isn't Battlefield 4, i doubt bf4 would even launch on his system, it's EA's attempt at grabbing money trough BF2


Aren't you a little young to be buying hardware on your own? Do you even know how to install new hardware?

Go to Crucial and run their system scan to find out how much RAM you can have in your machine.  RAM is the biggest bang for the buck upgrade you can do for a computer.  If you can go to 8GB you should see a massive improvement in performance.  If you can go to 4GB you will see some improvement.


I'd recommend discussing with your parents about possibly getting a new(er) machine for (insert gift giving reason here).  Offer to toss in your 140 pounds to get a better machine.  Putting the money towards a newer machine would probably get you further along and you'll be much happier.  Maybe see if they will match your funds towards a new machine?  You should be able to get something pretty good for almost 300 pounds.
