    I am looking to upgrade my PC for gaming, but I am on a short budget right now of only 250$.

    What are the best possible upgrades I can get for my current specs, and are there any websites that give great deals on computer parts?

    My PC specs:

    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
    System Model: ET1831
    BIOS: Default System Bios
    Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70 GHZ (2 CPUs), ~2.7GHZ
    Memory: 4096MB RAM
    Page file: 1692 MB used, 6496 available
    DirectX Version: DirectX 11
    Display: ATI Radeon HD 4350


    Thanks!

    In your price range,you are probably looking at a better power supply
    and a better video card.
    Maybe an nvidia 460 series.

    Just make sure you check the length of the card and make sure
    it will fit in your case.
    That should leave enough for a power supply.
    Don't get a cheap power supply.
    There is a quad core processor available for that board,but it's about
    $250 by itself and your dual isn't too bad.

    Still want a better power supply before you go that route.
    This should be a cpu compatability list for the motherboard
    in your computer.
