Looking to upgrade main parts
Cpu: A64 3500+
Vid: Radeon X800XL
Mem: 1 gb generic ram
mobo: gigabyte nForce4 ultra
CPU: I am debating between INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6850 3.0GHz and
INTEL CORE 2 QUAD Q6600 2.4 GHz Prices are almost identical, and I just flat out don’t know which ones to get…
Vid: GeForce 8800 GTS 320mb (the main thing that prompted me to upgrade… My current card doesn’t support shader 3.0… any card better than this at the price range?)
Memory: 2gb generic ram, I don’t OC so I want to save some money, any recommendation?
Mobo: Not sure which one to get, mainly something that has room for future upgrade.
HD: Is there a big difference using a 10k rpm HD for gaming vs the 7.5k rpm ones? Is it a worthwhile investment to buy a small 10k rpm for speed sensitive stuff?
powersupply: I currently use the stock PS that comes with my case, but I think that’d no longer cut it… so what wattage should be a safe bet for me…
