    Default Upgrade Advice


    I'd like your recommendations on any/all upgrades you'd suggest to improve my gaming PC. Its a *gulp* emachines, with the following specs:

    At this point I've upgraded the video card to a BFG 6600 GT OC 128mb GDDR3

    Where do I go from here? Please don't say "start over..."!

    Thanks for your help!

    Start over.

    Actually, I'm almost serious. You'd see some advantage from another 512MB of RAM, and if you had gotten a 6800 instead of a 6600GT, it would have helped a little more. ANy other upgrades would basically involve building an entirely-new PC.
