Medium computer upgrade.
I had a couple of questions I wanted to ask you guys. I currently have a 6800gt, amd3500+ with an av8 mother board (socket 939). I want to upgrade so that counterstrike source will run with 150+ FPS.
So now for the questions. I have AGP and no PCI Express. Does that mean I have to upgrade my mobo to upgrade my card? (or should I get a 7900gs AGP card for a small $150 upgrade?)
Also, if I upgrade my new mobo, is it better to get a 8600GTS or one of the 7 series cards? Which one?
Lastly, if I should upgrade my mobo, would it be worthwhile to upgrade my CPU? Any very good value for price CPU upgrades?
I want to keep my thermal take case, PSU, and harddrive, as I have nothing wrong with that. I might want to upgrade my ram. I have about 600 dollars to spend. What do you guys think?
