Looking for upgrade options.


Sep 24, 2011
Hello all.

I am looking for the best upgrade bang for the buck on this system:

Asus P5GC-MX motherboard w/ Intel i945G/GZ chipset

Intel Core2 Duo E4500 @2.20 GHz processors

4GB DDR2 ram

NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT graphics card

What I'd like to do is upgrade the graphics card and possibly put a SSD in there for my OS and games. (I should say game. I basically only play Warcraft, but I plan on multi-boxing soon so I need a little more oomph than I currently have. I also plan on playing SW: The Old Republic when it drops, but I have no idea what the system requirements are for that.)

I would prefer not to go over $150 for either the card or the SSD if possible, but that's not a deal-breaker.

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
