I dont know where to post this so, i'll do it here, I am planning on upgrading, but I don't know what yet.
my current system is a AMD 64 3400+,1GB Corsiar PC3200 Ram,40GB HDD, and a 180GB ATA/133 HDD, and a 9600XT
I am trying to decide on if I should keep the current system, and just get a AGP 6800GT.
or upgrade to a AMD 64 4000+, 1GB ram, 120GB SATA hdd, and either a X850XT or 7800GT.
so which is better? I know the second system is, but is it worth it upgrading to a completely new pc just for pci-e and the option for a more powerful video card?
I just want a pc that can haul ass in current games like F.E.A.R. and Call of duty 2, and make them look better then what my 9600XT does.
if I get this system it will be mid janurary to mid feburary, so prices will go down by then.
what do you guys think? or do you have a better idea of a great system, thats not overdoing.
I am staying away from the FX series because they are alot for my budget.
and as a side note, if I was to buy a pci-e mobo, and new system and all, which card would be better, X850XT or 7800GT?
