    Ok, at the moment i have
    P4 HT @ 3Ghz (2cpu's it says?? it damn well doesnt perform like it)
    2gb ddr2 RAM
    512mb Geforce 7300LE
    Some **** SigmaTel integrated sound
    Windows XP Home SP2
    160Gb Hdd
    Dell 19" Flatpanel

    Basically i want to upgrade some of it since all the next-gen games are coming out - games which require 3ghz cpu, etc as a minimum. So what i would like to know is what would be best to upgrade, and what i should upgrade it to! I've been thinking for a while about getting an intel core 2 duo, but ive read on some forums that its actually more cost effective to get an AMD as they actually give far better performance for their cost. Ive also been told that my graphics card has a very slow core speed despite the 512mb and the fact that i've overclocked it (a little). Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
