I just built my computer, and i have noticed an extreme problem. The memory clock on my FX 5500, which is supposed to be 400 mhz, is running at 66. Its awful. I have 1/2 gig of ram, intel P4 3.3ghz with HT, a 500W psu.
I ran 3D mark 05, and I think i got the lowest score ever... 279. Not kidding. I am ashamed. I cant even run Halo at all low settings.
The question is this: which should i upgrade first? should i get the 2 1-gig sticks of GSkill ddr2, or should i get a 512MB 7900x series video card? I know those cards are expensive, but i decided to go for a nice one so i wont have to upgrade for a few years.
But, another factor is this: I wont be running any high-end games until around Christmas, when i can afford them and will have time to play them. Until then, ill have to stick to emulators and half-life 1.
So, in other words, put yourselves in my shoes, and which would you get. Please tell me your opinion. Thanx!!
