Alright, nerd herd, Doom III and Half-Life 2 beckons, among other things, so I need to A.) Buy a new computer or B.) Upgrade my current one. I got a quote of about 1300.00 for a new comp from Dell, with like a 3.2 Ghz Processor, 1 GB of RAM, 256 MB Video Card...I currently have a P4 1.7 Ghz, 1 Gig Ram, and a Radeon 9600 Pro Video Card. Would it be easier to upgrade the motherboard and processor? I can do basic shit like install RAM, Video Cards, CD drives, set master/slave shit, etc., but I havent messed around with a motherboard. Looking for 3+ Ghz processor 2+ Gig of Ram 256 MB Radeon Card That's about it, my DVD and CD-RW are fine for now.
