    Hey, thanks for the reply,

    I should be coming into some money, around a grand to be specific (UK sterling), but obviously I don't want to spend a lot of the money as I am stingy like that:P

    I'm just wondering if it is best to improve my computer or just completely scrap it and buy a new one as it is integrated graphics and I don't think it has a GPU slot so I won't be able to run games decently without a different motherboard. I guess this is what I get for buying a prebuilt computer from PCworld. God I was stupid-.-

    You could also sell your current one to help offset the cost of building a new one. You would also need to decided what you want to use your PC for. That dictates alot of what you will need as far as hardware.
