o ok, well is it still worth it to buy a 2gb 2x1gb OCZ ram its 200 but a 40 rebate so about 160. compared to if u did any other ram thats 2gb. But as said earlier doing the 2x512 and another 2x512 would make it even slower and that was valueram at 132 bucks.

hmm it showed that the 10,000 rpm is alot faster but didnt have much better performance in games so I dont think it is necessary for me.

or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148015

Question is, i know its 80gb, is that why its so cheap? or would a 250gb hdd same brand and 200rpm be faster or exactly the same? Because I want the same speed but just not as much space to have 80gb is more than enough for me.

O ya, one of those links for benchmark stuff, the dual core processor.....

Dual core processors got craped on when it came to gaming. Now i question wheather a single or dual core. I know new games will have dual written code but for BF2 i dont see how if using a dual core almost splits ur performance in half compared to another single processor of the same speed.

The amd athlon 4000 pwned the amd athlon x2 4800+ in gaming. And was horrible. But mintes justa 3800 does that mean BF2 will be impossible? I thot dual core was good for like, I could play my games and the other applications running like virus stuff would run on other or something making pc faster.

having more ram will let you muti task better than having a faster cpu. and 2 gb is plenty.

right now the 3800 x2 is basically two 3200+'s if i remember correctly.
i think im quoting others, but theoritically any cpu >3200 single core can beat the 3800? correct me if im wrong, but isnt that how its supposed to be for all apps that's not coded for dual core?

definitely go for the OCZ that s***'s tight.
you've got a high-end system build here, you will have no trouble playing BF2 on more than satisfying settings
i've never really played BF2 while scanning for viruses though....

a faster hard drive just lowers the load times a bit thats all. if u dont care about loading then theres no point

now go get ur PC!
