    Want to play games like Skyrim, GTA IV, TDU2 , SimCity (5)? Heres a good GT5404 setup:

    Intel Core 2 Duo e6700 (upgrade from Pentium D 915) = $40
    GalaxyTech Nvidia GTS250 w/ 1GB GDDR3 Ram (upgrade from OB Graphics) = $50
    2 x 2GB PC6400 800mhz Ram, 4GB Total (upgrade from 2 x 512 Mb PC4200) = $30

    Most important, with the installation of a power hungry Graphics Card such as the one
    I mentioned above, you will need to upgrade the stock PSU as well. I’m using:

    Corsair CX430, 430w w/ single 28amp 12v rail, 85% or better eff. at max load = $40
