Right, i'm looking into maybe building a gaming pc, my budget is stupidly tight and I know fuck all about PC hardware. I don't need a state-of-the-art system, just one that will run most games smoothely without issues. I've allready got a desktop PC that is completely screwed, infected with all sorts of crap, runs stupidly slow and has a bitchfit if you try to run more than one programme, so it will be cheaper to just upgrade that. I'll run you through my current specs and hopefully some of you can tell me what I need to upgrade. XP Proffesional 2002 AMD athlon 64 proccesor 1.99Ghz radeon xpress 200 graphics card 385 mb ram (i know i need at least 2gb) 150gb hard-drive a big ass case.
