Hi, theres this samsung CPU i want to upgrade
Its pentium 4 3.0ghz w/HT
1gb of ram
geforce fx5200 (low profile edition)
AGP 8x Mobo
Samsung low profile case (like 9.8 cm wide, so i cant fit full height graphic cards)
I was wondering what i should be upgrading here to play hl2/fear or something.
I have a budget of around 750NZD (about 500USD)
My opinions: Definataly scrap the low profile case (get a thermaltake tsunami dream), use a spare radeon 9600PRO, overclock it, and use it. OR scrap the low profile case, (get tsunami), and get a new AGP card? ...But bearing in mind, like, BFG Nvidia geforce 6800ULTRAOC is like 1,100NZD, (800USD) in NZ (new zealand) dont know why... (which brings a new question, is there any cheap retail american stores out there where i can get BFG Nvidia geforce 6800ULTRAOC'ed for like, 400NZD that ships worldwide?)
Any different opinions?
