Upgrading older rig, need advice.
I have an AMD Ahtlon XP 2500 running on a Gigabyte Nforce 2 Mobo and an FX5200 card. I want to plunk down some money to get this thing running modern games decently, but I really dont want to pay for a new motherboard or CPU, since I already have a 64 bit platform (sig).
So, staying with socket A, how can I get the most out of this aging combo? Whats the fastest GPU I can effectivley use on a 400mhz bus? Any advice is welcome
