  evolucions 10:59 AM 29 Jan 12

Hi all, I have a p5b-vm se Motherboard and am wanting advice on what recommendations would make a good (and also top) spec upgrade (CPU, RAM and Graphics Card. I am also running the following:

Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2200 @ 2.20GHz

4gb 4 x 1gb DDR PC2-6400 (x2) DDR PC2-5300

500BG Seagate HDD

GeForce 8600 GT 1.5gb

Windows 7 Ultimate

I am now wanting to take it to the 30th Century, without costing me a remortgage hopefully.

Many thanks in advance.
