Post Worth doing or not?

I have enough money for a new processor and motherboard... I have ddr2 ram, but the motherboard doesn't support ddr3 memory, so that needs an upgrade.

So is it worth doing this...

Getting a motherboard compatible for ddr2 and ddr3 memory and then getting an AM3+ socket processor... for example.


AMD:


MOBO - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-ASRock...item2ebfccfe01

CPU - http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-ADX640WF...8037422&sr=8-1

INTEL:

MOBO - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-GIGABY...item35c256c619

CPU - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-E8400-...8037196&sr=8-8

Is this worth doing, and then upgrading of course. EG Buying DDR3 ram, and graphics card and extra hard drive space...

Or shall I just save up 300 (take me a couple of months, im only 16 and still go to school)

If i was to do this, my personal opinion would be to go for the AMD option as it is a quad core and I want this for gaming. So when i do get my graphics card, it will run smoothly on most games, on ultra.

Thanks in advance!

Don't get stuck with DDR2 memory, it's slower.

if you actually clicked the link for the motherboards, they have 4 slots, 2 available for ddr2 and 2 available for ddr3 and i'm pretty certain they also have a max capacity of 8GB which is more than enough.

I have an intel pentium 4, with 4 GB ddr2... if I buy the AMD version, that will upgrade my PC and then I could upgrade the PSU and get a better graphics card and then upgrade to ddr3 memory. I just need a computer that can run games better, that's all.

The JackFrags build seems like the best option you have at the moment, atleast you will know the parts are compatible.

I'd just save for a bit and get a nice computer that would last you some time instead of just getting parts that will soon be too slow.
