New video card or CPU?
Hi. I need some advice with a choice I am going to make.
Right now I have a Pentium 4, 2.4 Ghz, one GB of memory, and an Nvidia PNY 5900, 128 mb (AGP).
I want to upgrade my rig, so I can get higher FPS in my games. My FPS in doom 3, half-life 2, and the Battlefield 2 demo is low, and I hate playing with most of the features disabled for performance.
My choices are:
1. Buy a Pentium 3.0 Ghz, 800 bus, 1 mb cache, & a DVD-rom.
2. (update) My motherboard is big enough to fit a Leadtek 6800 GT, so I think I'll list that one instead of the eVGA.
Which one would increase my FPS more? I cannot get both of them right now, but I do have enough cash for one.
If I got the new CPU, would it make my 5900 faster?
