I am going to upgrade my computer with a new graphics card. My comp is too old to use PCI-E so I'm stuck with AGP. As a broke college student getting a new motherboard is out. So, I need advice on two things:
1. Whether I should get the 7600gs or 7800gs. I know the 7800 is better but is it worth the extra money? Also is it worth it to get the 512 MB versions or stick with the 256 MB. Again I know one is better but I've read that they cannot really use 512 MB so I'd just be wasting money. So advice on brand and model would be appreciated.
2. I need advice on a new PSU. Is there a limit on the wattage my motherboard can take? I've heard that mine may max at 350W, but the best graphics cards say they need 400W. So, advice and suggestions on what I should do would be great.
My comp specs:
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (2.0 GHz)
1 GB RAM (2x512) (added 1 stick)
200 GB Hard Drive
added Creative Audigy 2 sound card
^Link has all the info about my comp.
Thanks for any and all help.
