Processor VS Video Card
First of all, this looks like a great site. Lots of help available.
So here's my question:
Since my computer is a dinosaur..
Undisclosed ASUS Mobo
BFG 7900GS OC
WD 200GB IDE HD
I really need to upgrade. Unfortunately I think I'll have to do it a piece at a time. My question, finally, is what would be the biggest performance boost right now?
An Intel Q6600 or an XFX 8800GTX? Obviously I would have to get a new motherboard for the cpu, and what would be a good, well priced board? Would my lame cpu bottleneck the **** out of the 8800, or would I see larger gains with the vga? I'm kind of lost, any help would be appreciated. In the future I'd also like to get a good set of 1GB sticks of RAM, and a SATA HD.
