    Help me y0

    So my PC could use some upgrades.
    I think my processor and RAM (7.2 on windows scale) aswell as my HDD (1TB 5,9) should be allright.
    But the graphic-card(ati HD 4350) is really outdated and not reliable.
    So im looking for a good new graphic-card(dont care if amd/nvidia etc.)
    And it would be nice if it would be a low budget one.
    Since i think my current case looks like i might aswell get a more colourfull one.
    Any advice?

    if you are looking for a low budget gpu i would first ask you are you willing to buy a second hand one? if yes look for a 6950 or a 6870 they usually go for cheap and there pretty good. if you want to buy new get a 7770 they are great for the price. tell us your budget so we can give more detailed info

    @Abbadon The Despoiler I wouldnt mind using a second handed, since the most good video cards are pretty new anway.
    my budget would be around 75 with some coupons at a local tech store.
    But im selling my PS3, i could get 110 bucks more in 24 hours if needed. so that would be 160 or 185 in a specific store. i would rather spend 100 tho, so that i
    also can buy a nice case or just inCASE some extra ram upgrade
    It doesnt have to be like a extreme one that can play bf3/fc3 at ultra settings etc. just one that covers pretty much all games at medium/high settings.
    @KidoThe Thanks for the suggestion, ill google it up.

    Also any suggestions on a new case?
    a white/blue would fit me better

    Thanks pals

    Definitely invest in an SSD. It literally makes your games run 5x faster. Budge your RAM up to 8gb. See how that works for ya, then it's time to upgrade the processor.

    @KidoThe , ill look up for some SSD's although i have no clue what they do, i hear people talking about it all the time lol.
    and yea a RAM upgrade is a good idea. and about processors, any 4 X 3.2 or above seems to be allright.
    @Delko DJ Thanks for the suggestion, ill look up for it.

    Ps. i got a higher budget now, 90 extra.
    I might get a friend to get me his i7 and GPU in a trade.
    Not sure for now.

    I might just buid an entire new one.


    Thanks pals

    SSD's don't improve game performance.
    Most games read everything from the RAM so an SSD is pointless. SSD's are used for stuff like faster boot times and quicker file transfers.
    They would only affect performance if a game was reading textures from a HDD to an SDD.
    And well you're pretty stupid if you manage to have it set up like that.

    SSD's do improve gameplay. Well in my experience they do.
    This setup isn't stupid, it's a great setup. I used for about a year or so and nothing went wrong.

    SSD's will not improve fps/gameplay performance. You may get like a few fps if you went into detail with benchmarking etc.
    They're not designed that way, i even welcome you to google it for more answers.
    As i said, if you manage to have a game reading its contents from a complete separate drive, That's a bit stupid.
    Though i doubt that's what you have going on.

    I'm not here to argue, if it effected you. Cool.

    they do not improve fps what they do improve is loading times
