Its only used for playing poker but its getting really slow/laggy with around 10 poker clients open and waiting/playing on a lot of tables while running HEM(1 for now but maybe 2 later), Notecaddy and Tablescan Turbo.
A new motherboard, CPU, harddisk(SSD?) and RAM(DDR3 much faster than the DDR2 that I have?) are necessary to make it run smoothly again.
How about the graphics card? I only play on 1 monitor so that should be enough or are the new integrated ones better than mine anyways now?
Power supply good enough?
What kind of cooling system(right now its just an usual air cooler)?
The goal is to create a new stable and smooth for my poker needs.
Cost effectivness and performance for poker is key, maybe up to 500 Euro.
Thanks a lot in advance!
