So I've decided to try and upgrade my computer while I have the funds this Christmas.
Since I don't have a lot of money, I've been looking for the most affordable option, or the biggest bang for the buck.
I'm going to be upgrading over time, so I only need a few things to get by for now.
I found a cheap APU (which claims to be an effective CPU/GPU combo), which I needed a Motherboard for. So I found a motherboard that fits my needs. Then I needed RAM to fit, so I've found that.
I'm getting two sticks of 2GB RAM, so that's 4GB. I believe the GPU uses the RAM as its memory. The CPU has two cores.
The motherboard will have extra PCI slots for my Wireless Network Adapter and another Graphics Card if I want it. It should have the proper hookups for my HDD, DVD RW, and PSU.
My PSU is currently 450W.
This is all a pretty good upgrade compared to what I had, and comes to $145 USD
What do you think? Could I do better, or is this pretty good for the money? Do you think it will work fine, or will I come across troubles with this APU business?
