I am running an X2 3800, 1GB DDR Corsair Ram, SB Audigy 2ZS, 250GB Western Digital HDD, and an eVGA 7900GT KO.
I'm basically a gamer, so graphic performance is what I'm after. I'm not sure which out of the following options would help give me the largest boost.
1. Buy an 8800GTX. This would also probably require me to upgrade my 550watt Rosewill PSU.
2. Buy a new socket 775 (Gigabyte 965p looks good) Motherboard and pick up an E6600 and probably go with 2GB's of ram, and keep my current video card.
What I am concerned about, is will I in any way be bottleknocked by my X2 3800 CPU if I buy a 8800GTX?
I guess I have a 3rd option, sell everything I have and build me a new system with the E6600, 8800GTX and 2GB's of ram. Prefer not to spend that much right now, so asking for any thoughts
I'm eventually going to upgrade my motherboard/CPU/Ram, but I'm just trying to find out what will give me the best performance boost for now.
Thank you for any help.
