    Hi all,

    I'd just wondering if any of you could give me a little advice about upgrading/replacing parts of my current PC.

    I'm currently using a 3-4 year old PC, which obviously is not making the cut for any new games anymore. I'm using a 3.8GHZ single core, 2GB DDR1 RAM and my motherboard obviously won't support anything new being 3-4 years old.

    However, I don't want to replace the entire PC. My case is decent and big enough to support anything, my graphics card is okayish I think, 8800GT 512MB, is this good enough? Do I really need to upgrade the Hard drives, CD drives, PSU (600W atm) etc?

    I fully understand I will have to upgrade my CPU, RAM, Motherboard, but im hoping to use quite a lot of the the old parts, such as HD's and CD drives so I can fork out more on the top range components that are essential.

    Thanks for any replies.
