What would you pick if in this situation?
Hi there. My laptop has been having plenty of problems for the past year, and is now practically trash. This is my situation, as I don't have money for another computer just yet:
Build a computer capped at 1 ghz with 1 gb of ram and a 256mb ati 1650x, or build a computer capped at 3 ghz with hyperthreading with 2 gb of ram and a 64mb ati 9000.
It's basically what I have lying around and the reason why I can't just put the best pieces together is because of motherboard limitations. I can't do this at high settings or with newer games, but which would be better with gaming? I play games from 08 and under, and am currently playing Halo CE. Also would windows 7 be optimal over xp for these builds?
