Most magazines seam to contradict them self’s, when you compare certain components, but will I notice an improvement especially on games or should I leave it alone and stay with what I have

My opinion is that you would be very hard pressed to notice a difference. You may see a difference if you do a 3D Mark test click here but the 'bare eye' would struggle. Therefore, would the cost justify what would be a barely discernible difference? But each to his own and if cost is not important...go for it. Hope this helps

Do you have a problem with any games?

If so, an improved grahics card and more RAM will make a difference to you.

Well then, take a second look at what KateB has found for herself - and you will probably be able to build an even faster one.

click here This would make a difference if you were one of the lucky ones not to have problems!! (I was one of the lucky ones to have owned a MESH for 3 years without any problem attributable to them) BTW You can find KateB on the thread linked to by Diodorus Siculus above or again here click here
