So why do you need 4 gigs of ram? I can never max out my 2 gigs of ram before I can max out my CPU.


Anyways what do you plan to be doing with your computer?

Well do you really need to throw out the 4 gigs of ram? You might also be able to keep the hard drive as well.


Anyways its a bit hard to build a really good gaming rig for 400 bucks.

Motherboards, GPU's, PC Cases and CPU's can total up to like 40-400 dollars by themselves.


So unless you know what sort of detail you want to run the games at I can't really advise any parts to get.

I take it you have DDR RAM and are planning on getting a mobo that requires DDR2.

I can't help much with budget PCs, since I am a terrible price shopper, but like others said try Newegg.

I have two desktops with DDR ram and one (cannot pull the mobo out of this one) that uses DDR2.

>_> So Yes I do need a new one.

Just remember shipping and handling can cost a lot if you order shit.

A small gaming computer would cost me about $600 with shipping + handling, CAD.

TigerDirect, ftw. I'm getting a few various things to change around my workplace a bit ([removed] for my blogs), and it's only costing me ~$260. Get yourself a better processor though. The one in my screenshot is for my server, as I'll be taking my server's Hyper-Threaded 3GHz P4 for my gaming rig -- then eventually getting a Core 2 Quad.




As you can see, that gives me a nice motherboard, graphics card, a case with a 450w power supply, and 4GB of RAM (2x 2048MB sticks @ 800MHz).

I would imagine that someone neg repped you for your grammar and spelling, not for your personal opinions on Microsoft (I guess, I nor can any non-staff member see the rep you got). And would it kill you to use the S key instead of Shift+4?
