Hi Guys,

Am a novice when it comes to pc hardware and was wanting to upgrade my current pc, so that I can play pc games like Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 on it.

My specs of my pc are as follows:

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3000+ 1800 MHZ, 1 Core(s) 1 Logical Processor(s)
Radeon x1600 Series (Approx Total Memory 766MB
Realtek AC'97 Audio
1536MB RAM

I got this pc fairly cheap, and want to upgrade so if you could tell me what kind of hardware am needing to upgrade to and what kind of money am needing to spend (in £'s), I would be very grateful.

to be honest i think the upgrade path will be a waste of money to run the games you are looking at you need a dual core system minimum so may be time to save up the pennies

however if your win 7 is retail you have a head start and may be able to put something together for a couple of hundred pounds
