Upgrading my PC: Where do I start?

  Forum Editor 01:00 31 Dec 2012

The single most effective upgrade is an increase in RAM, particularly where games and big image files are concerned, and I recommend that you tackle that first - add as much RAM as your motherboard will allow.

Next, look at upgrading the graphics card.

A good deal depends on the existing hardware configuration,as nickf says - the motherboard in particular - so let us have that information before we go any further. It may well be more cost effective to cut your losses and go for a new machine, but it's difficult to tell at the moment.
