Hi,@so far I have a
P4 3.0ghz /w HT socket 478
A OEM Samsung motherboard
1 gig of pc3200 DDR ram 256x4
eVGA 6800gt AGP
I decided to upgrade the ram to 2gigs, either 2x 1gig or 4x 512gig. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions to spend some of my spare change for upgrades.
Some random thoughts I had were (I use this PC for gaming)
Replace the samsung mobo with a overclockable one, replace the cpu fan and gpu fan with good zalmans or whatever and overclock.
I was wondering, Right now I cant overclock my 6800gt very high, not even to Ultra speeds, and was wondering if it was because of the stock fan, (heat issues) or because of my crap mobo. I know i cant overclock my cpu cause of my mobo, but does a crap mobo affect my gpu's overclockability?.
And also, I was wondering if i DID overclock my 6800gt to high speeds, with my new fan, on the basis that my crap mobo did not affect GPU overclockability, and Ive decided to keep it, would my 3.0ghz P4 bottleneck the 6800gt at ultra (or past) speeds
