So my PC was built in June of 2009, I have never upgraded it because I really never needed to. It hasn't been until about this year that games either can't run (Far Cry 3) or run very poorly. So, I'm looking to upgrade in the near future. CPU - AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+ 2.90 GHz GPU - NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT 2GB of ram I want to focus on these 3 for upgrades. At this point, I definately feel like more RAM is just a must. I mean shit, I think our laptops have 4GB minimum these days. The biggest issue here is I have no idea how good/bad my CPU and GPU are. Are they low level stuff? I'm not looking to get $400 upgrades here. Just upgrades that will make running future games easier. Not maxed out, but capable of running smoothly.
