Okay, first off, I know almost nothing about computers past basic stuff, so try to be as basic with me as possible. Im in school, wanting to build a budget system for around 400-600 best bang for buck for gaming. I already have a monitor, keyboard and mouse, just wanting the PC...I have had a friend put together a list for and we have been changing it around a little.
First off, I already have a geforce 5200fx video card. I was planning on getting the 6600gt, but due to costs and fixing my beater car I cant right now, but he says he will trade me his ATI 8500(agp) for my 5200fx(pci) because he does not have a agp slot on his computer. Which one of these cards is better?
Here is the list, I am planning on getting some different fans and a different PSU, but thats about it. Again, this is a budget BEST BANG FOR BUCK system I want built, I dont want replies about me spending another 400 bucks, I just dont have the money now
