Hi Everyone, it's me again!
Like I have mentioned in previous threads, I am planning on upgrading for Half-life 2 / Doom 3. I am looking into purchasing the following (I want something that will tear up games with the HIGHEST
graphic settings (including AA/AF, etc)).:
AMD ATHLON64 3000+ BOX ($339)
AMD ATHLON64 3200+ BOX ($439)
(Keep in mind I have everything but cpu/mobo/ram. GCard is Radeon 9800 Pro)
I know now that the AMD64 is 2.0 Ghz. I currently have a 1.8 Ghz P4. My question is:
Is it worth spening $339-$449 for .2 Ghz? Does 64bit processing make that big of a difference in performance? And which would be the better buy for its price? AMD64 3000+ or 3200+?
Thx for taking the time to read/respond to my post!
P.S.: I am already about to buy some memory. It will be 1Gb of Corsair @ 400Mhz (Expensive, but must be worth it
