What I ended up doing, is using my DDR3 RAM from an older computer...(Guy at a computer store said it was the same speed as the new one, so no issues)
Bought a new motherboard.. ASUS F1 A75-M Pro Motherboard
, with the AMD A6 3670
CPU, Sapphire Radeon HD 7770
, and some new RAM, (5GB all together)...
All in all, spent about $425 with all that, case, and an extra fan....
Had the screen already.. (Playstation 3D TV 24'' LED
)... (Got it from my girlfriend for my birthday!)
And I can run anything thrown at it, at MAX settings...
Skyrim is beautiful with that patch...
Perfect machine, for somewhat cheap..
So, if you count the screen in the price, it was $625(+Tax).
More than what I wanted to spend, but it worked out fine.... Don't count the TV, $425 on something this great, isn't bad at all..
Board was $75, CPU $135 after shipping, Vid card $120 after shipping, $20 for new RAM stick.
Case (XION XON-180PCB
) was $60-$75)
I do need help though... says only 2.99 of 5 GB RAM is available..
Anyway to fix this?
Says eMachines because I didn't have a Windows 7 disc, so I got that motherboard specifically so I didn't have to re-install, saving me $100+.
Original computer I started with was an eMachines, stock computer, nothing special at all.
