Im thinking of buying the Chaintech 7NJL6 with an Atlon XP 3000, 512 of ram and a video card, not sure what kind yet, my budget is $300 right now (canadian dollars). The motherboard and cpu comes to $166 after rebates, tax and shipping, then add some cheap ram for like $65 after taxes then that leaves me with $70 for a video card. I'm looking to play games like HL2, CSS and maybe some DOOM3, now i know what your thinking, this setup is crap but im building an Athlon 64 a bit later but right now I need something other than my Duron 850
lol. Anyway my question is if i decide to go with an FX 5500 or something, what kinda FPS are we talking about here?
Btw: I already have a 40 GIG harddrive, DVD-rom, CD-burner, case, psu and a monitor... Just need the GUTS!
