With Christmas coming up,presents to return and driveways to shovel, I'l have a little bit of extra cash in my pocket so I'm thinking about a new upgrade. I don't want to do a major upgrade like a whole new mobo or cpu. Whaty should I get?
I could get a new cpu: 3.2GHz w/ 1MB cache 800MHz fsb and HT for 218$ here: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...116-172&depa=1
I could get an Nvidia 6600GT 128MB DDR3 500/1000MHZ for 225$ here: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...150-080&depa=1
I'm trying to get the upgrade that will get me the best fps difference. I think it would be the vidcard.
If you suggest anything else please let me know. My budget is 250$
My current specs are:
Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000 Pro 800MHz FSB Dual channel
1280MB of PC3200 Ram in Dual channel config
ATI Radeon 9800SE 325/325
Celeron 2.8GHz 400MHz FSB 128KB cache @ 3.107GHz
80GB WD 5400RPM IDE HDD
DVD+-R/RW 8x and CD-RW 42x
