Re: Upgraded needed where?

Yeah, I have kinda been out of the computer building scene for a couple of years, so I've lost touch with what's new and what is good anymore. I wasn't sure if anyone could maybe point out a weak point in my system, or is it that old where I would be splitting hairs.

Thanks for the advice.

I'm not suggesting you have a weak, or slow system. The Athlon II is a bit "dated", but still capable of running your games. I am jus' saying there may be other things, (like slow internet, or full HDD) that might be slowing it down, (lag).
I've found that to be the case a lot of times.

If you have the $$, and want to build another system yourself, then I would start fresh, with a new Intel Ivy bridge platform, (Intel jus' soundly beats AMD in performance these days) and add on, according to how much you can stand to spend.
Good luck!

It depends on the game you are playing. The hard drive and video card will slow any game down. Your CPU is dated yet may do the job. 4-GB RAM is the minimum you should have today and 8-GB will do better. Take a look at the recommendations for the games you are playing and then decide what to do.
