Command and Conquer 4: Installation & Hardware Blues

Looks like this is going to take some time. I’m installing Command & Conquer 4 on my old PC, an Athlon 64 3000 with 1 Gigabyte of RAM, a ATI 1600 Pro video card with 256 MB RAM with Windows 7. And did I mention that this is the first time in months since I booted up this machine?

If this fails, I’ll most likely go about upgrading my machine, starting with a total overhaul for processor, motherboard and RAM, before replacing the graphics card. Having being out of the hardware arms race for the better part of 3 years, I’m a little rusty on what to get.

But I do know one thing when it comes to upgrading, it’s always a best practise to set a budget. I’m allocating RM 1,500 for this endeavour and I’ve an inclination for AMD chips. Perhaps one of the Phenoms or Athlon 2s would be nice. What do you think?
