New Comp.. advice?
Hi guys. I just built a new computer but can I have some advice on what it should be able to do and not do
and also, what I should upgrade in the coming years. I would REALLY appreciate it as I'm not as in tune with computers as I used to be.
I'm posting the names they have on Newegg, so sorry if they're long! Hahaha
I've got a 23" Samsung BX2331 LCD Full HD monitor
Cooler Master Full Tower computer case
GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ATI Radeon 5750 Video Card XFX 1 GB
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor
Antec TruePower New TP-750 750W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply
CORSAIR XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Regular keyboard and mouse haha, and that's about it!
How goes that?
I've got money to make adjustments, I just want to have a good rig and be done haha. If you know of any parts specifically that can help, please lemme know.

It's hard to anticipate what the computer will and will not be capable of down the road. Depending on what you anticipate doing with your PC, it doesn't look significantly outdated to me. If you're looking at gaming, graphics card and memory cap are typically the two items that typically get outdated faster. But again, looks fine to me for now.
I'm guessing that you have a good reason to ask this question. Was there a game or an application which was not performing up to par that leads you to ask?

A computer is nothing more than a tool for running software and storing data.
What kind of computer you need really depends on which applications you will eventually need to run....which of course is damn near impossible to predict.
Just buy what will work for you today and hope that it's still useful far enough into the future.
