Ok I have this old computer I uncovered in my attic. The specs are this: p4 2.8ghz 800mhz fsb, 1gb pc3200 (2x 512mb), 9600xt, and a broken motherboard. I checked this by plugging all the other hardware carefully into another old machine. I went to my local mom and pop computer shop and they told em the bios is corrupt and the mobo is so crappy, cant replace chip. So i figured to replace the mobo, I would get this one (MSI PM8M-V Socket 478 VIA P4M800 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813130519.
I have heard they are decent motherboards and my friends got one. I also was wondering, is this video card (SAPPHIRE 100148 Radeon X1600PRO 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102665
better than my ati radeon 9600xt? I am selling this to a friend for 750 and doing mods so it is cool and such but I was wondering if this video card would give him better fps and better graphics than the 9600. The max I can spend between them is 150 (about). I might be able to get my dad to fund me maybe $100 more. If I could I could get a much better card.
