    Default got the game, now i need new hardware

    Most of you probably don't know who i am [haven't been on in like 2 years]. but oh well. i picked up warhammer a few weeks ago, and didn't find out it had a free month *facepalm*. Well i need to know what i should upgrade. I'm thinking my graphics card because it's one of the few that WAR doesn't support [7300gs].

    Processor:
    AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+, MMX, 3DNow, ~2.2GHz[ running at 3.5]


    Memory:
    1022MB RAM

    Video Card:
    NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GS

    Operating System:
    Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2

    so what should i switch out for something new?

    EDIT: putting this somewhere else due to lack of posts

    1GB of ram is far too little, so i'd get that upgraded to at least 2GB's of high quality DDR2 - depending where you live there is always cheap OCZ ram on sale online.

    Of course the graphics card needs to be upgraded to something stronger.
    I just got WAR myself and I'm running on an 8800 GT, however I'm sure you can probably drop to the 8600GT and still run it fine.

    Either way, I'd see you shelling out around 100-130$ CAN (i live in canada lewl). The processor should be fine overclocked.
