Hello oh beautiful people.

I realy need some tips on what to spend my small budget money on to get most out of it.

I bought a gaming PC from local IT store some years back and It is a pain to be around now adays.

It freezes, lags, slower then a turle, and for a gamer who is looking at the market today. I'm sad.

This is my setup:


Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

AMD Athlon™ II X3 445 Processor (3 CPUs), ~3.1GHz

4096MB RAM

AMD Radeon HD 5700 Series

and something 500w PCU


That's what I know atleast, NOW. for my question at hand. 

What should I upgrade/spend on. More RAM ? better PCU, and my budget is nothing glourius. Atm i'm only sitting on 120 EUR sooo... What's next? :oo 


Should I save up for a whole new computer ? :/


Thank you for your time pps!

Those are fairly low specs, I recommend saving your money and spending it on a new computer instead of upgrades.  You can carry over some hardware to save on money, you may be able to reuse the case, power supply, optical drive, and hard drives.


You could reinstall Windows 7 but use the 64-bit version to use all of the 4GB of RAM, however, I don't believe this will help with speeding up your computer.
