im thinking of upgrading my old system and would like some advice on my possible choices.
cpu; 3800+ athalon 64x2
mobo; Asus A8n-SLI premium nForce 4
hdd; Wd 740gd Raptor, 74GB 10,000rpm as a systems hdd
and Wd 2000js 200gb 7200rpm as a storage drive
videocard; gainward BP 7900GTX -512
case and psu; Antec TX1050b with a 500w smartpower 2psu
they are the basics i have been concidering, but there are some things i am unsure of;
ram; what speed and how much would i need to work with the proposed system.
cpu; is the 3800+x2 worth the extra money for the dualcore or would a faster clocked singlecore 64 a better alternative (computer primarily used for gaming).
also the graphics card i am unsure of,it is expensive and i was wondering if there were any cheaper alternatives which will offer similar performance
thanks heaps, any feedback would be much appreciated
