When is it worth upgrading?
At the moment i have an athlonX XP 2500+, 768mb Ram, Radeon 9200se, 200gb HDD, DVD Burner, 19" LCD Monitor.
I have enough money to get:
Athlon 64 939 Venice 3000+
1gb (2x 512mb) OCZ Ram
A motherboard < $200 AUD
Antec Case with 500watt PSU
250gb SATA HDD (with NCQ) or 2x 120gb SATA in Raid 0.
I will use my current DVD Burner, Monitors, Keyboard and Mouse.
I will take the 120gb HDD out of my current system to make a total of 360/370GB but the old computer will still have the 80gb one so i can still use it.
Do you think i should get it, or should wait?
I know there isnt much performance difference between the 3000+ and the 3500+ but is it worth waiting to get a bit more money and getting a dual core setup?
Core 2 Duo E6400, DFI Infinity 975X/G, 2x 512mb DDR2 667mhz, Albatron 7900gt, WD 200gb SATA, Samsung DVD-RW, Silverstone ST-50EF 500w PSU.
