I've had the same set-up for about 6 years now and with all the new steam games (especially metro 2033) it is starting to show. I would like some advice on what will be holding back my gaming performance the most, and what I should be considering replacing it with.
I've got an ATX case with 650w PSU. It has a full sized ATX mobo (ECS elite group NF650iSLIT-a) and Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E6750 @ 2.66GHz. I have a nvidia 8800 GT and 3gb of ram. I
The motherboard is probably the most annoying thing at the moment. The built in USB ports all dies spontanetously about 4 years ago (in Windows and Linux so I think it is a hardware thing) and for some reason the BIOS has never been able to boot from USB, just CD.
I want to upraged the MOBO but is it worth getting a new processor as well or shall I save that money and put it towards new ram or graphics card?
Any suggestions for any makes or specs of the replacement bits?
