If you are near the Metro Manila area, i suggest you go to Gilmore and buy the parts then assemble your own pc.. Your'e going to save a lot of money like I did and you will have a decent machine..

Also if your into games, a high RAM (512 above) is a must, and also consider a very good video card.

im using nvdia video card right now 64mb memory

right now my ram is 320 and im planning to buy a 256 mb sd ram so it will be a total of 512mb because i have 3 slots and i will remove the 64 mb ram card, but i was thinking even i got 1gb ram i think its the process that matters correct me if im wrong...

Your motherboard (PIII) is old so i guess the RAM is outdated too. If you're going to buy current MOBO's in the market, Im afraid your 320 ram isnt compatible.

There are different formats of memory sticks.  (RAM)

I dont know but IMO, I think you should do a complete overhaul of the CPU. Php20,000 (w/o monitor) can give you a [email protected]$$ PC. I suggest that youll save more and try to build one yourself.. Its a good investment and youll be able to play current games until the next year.  :cool:

yah thanks for the suggestions..

there is 3 type of rams

sd ram for old type of pcs

dd ram for pentium 4 and up

rdram for branded computer

anyway if i buy a mother board with a procesor of celeron d 3.10 ghz i really shud buy a minimum of 256 dd ram and because of compatibility issues cause my sd ram wouldn't fit in.
