    well money is a problem here and also what do you mean when people say 'Bottlenecked'?

    For one, never get an MGD again. As you have found out they are not upgradeable and a waste of money. You'd be better off building your own PC in the future as it is not as hard as it sounds. You could even get one custom build for you from a place like NCIX and get a really good upgradeable PC.

    What he means by bottlenecked is that the PCI bus will prevent any increase in video card performance from helping your gameplay much. The PCI slot cannot deliver the information to the video card fast enough to make any read difference at all. It is barely worth it to upgrade and only do so if you have no plans on upgrading your system for awhile. Otherwise, save you money and plan a full system upgrade. I am also in Canada and can point you in the right direction as to where to get a good PC for a decent price. People outside of Canada have no idea how expensive PC parts are up here. I think only Australia has worse prices.

    thank you... i am not alone :P anyways i dont have any money on me so far... but later around december i am getting a new computer anyways (its a notebook/laptop for college) (Laptop = Dell M1710) and my old computer is going to be his, so there is no point of upgrading from a 5500 to a 6200?
