hi,
i'm considering upgrading my computer with a new graphics card and cpu. firstly, given that its a dell dimension e520 is it worth upgrading? ifso then secondly, which cpus could i buy (price range upto £100) that would give me a significant performance boost. thirdly, will i have to get a new power supply? i have no idea what i have. fourthly,i'm considering a 8800gts graphics card, any thoughts?

1)???
2)E6600
3) it's a 305W power supply. If you upgrade the cpu and put in a PCI-e card you would have to upgrade the PSU.

According to this you can upgrade to a core 2 duo.

Your power supply is only 350w so the best card is a 9600GT as the 8800gts requires a 450w PSU.
The 9600gt is almost on a par,espeacially with the overclocked version but cheaper.From £85.00 on Nova tech.
