Just wondering what the advantage is and when the new ones are coming out? So far I really liked the X800XL because it got good reviews, what counts when it comes to video cards? What is the minimum I should be looking for? Heres my current spec and what I'm planning on getting
Parts I have:
Enermax 535W PSU (Dual 12V rails, SLI connector x2, PCI Express, SATA, Dual Fans)
DFI LanParty UT nF4-D (Socket 939, NVIDIA nForce4, AMD)
A-TOP X-Blade Case.
Parts I'd like to get:
AMD Athlon 64 CPU at least 2.0GHZ and 512 L2 Cache, HyperTransport
1GB PC3200 DDR400 RAM (Dual Channel, Planning on adding another Gig later)
Internal DVD-R RW DL Burner
Internal DVD Player
Good Video Card around $300US (open to suggestions)
Some sort of TV Tuner card (or mabye a good graphics card that incorporates one into the card)
Suitable sound card for gaming and watching TV
Am I on the right track so far? Any suggestions for a guy just getting into it?
