admin answers:

Hello, i bought a cheap pool cleaner and it went all bad it cost more to have it repaired. Instead of having it repair which it would have totaled the cost of a better quality one. I ended up purchasing the kreepy krawler, i’ve had it for 5 yrs and don’t regret at all investing in the better one.

James asks…

How does this rig fair in gaming?

Well, I’m on a very constricted budget, and I do a lot of heavy gaming. I would like to know what you think of my set up (I know its not great) and how would I improve performance. My friend mentioned that RAM and processor upgrade would make a HUGE impact on my performance, I’m not too convinced on the scale of impact he emphasizes.

Dell Dimension 5150:
Pentium D Smithfield 820 (2.8GHz, 2x 1MB L2 Cache, 800MHz FSB)
Dell Mobo model 0HJ054
2GB DDR2 RAM @ 533MHz
750GB 7200 RPM Hard drive with peak transfer speeds of 115MB/s
ATi Radeon HD 4670 1GB

If I am to upgrade the CPU and RAM I would want an AMD CPU so I was wondering if this upgrade would be worth $320?

Asus M4A79XTD Evo

AMD Phenom II x4 (2.8GHz, 6MB L3 Cache)

2GB DDR3 RAM @ 1600MHz

Please rate my rig currently, how it would be after upgrades, and tell me if it is worth upgrading. Thanks a lot.

The Pentium D is pretty old. Since you are a heavy gamer an upgrade for the CPU is definitely a good idea.
You can save a little money with your upgrade by getting a Phenom x3 instead of the x4.
No games out now, not even Crysis, will utilize all four cores. A new dual core would be acceptable as well, but the x3 will still give a performance boost, and save you $20 or so. A Phenom x2 is only $64, so if you are really tight on cash, this is an option.
Asus makes great mobos, but the MSI K9A2 is highly rated and will take a socket AM3 CPU up to 125w TDP. The x3 is 95w. It uses DDR2 so that will save a little money for you too. For $80, that would save you $60. The difference in performance is negligible between DDR2 and DDR3l
So unless there are features of the Asus board you really want, the MSI could work for you. The specs say the board will take the AM3 cpu, but you may want to make sure before you buy.
