One More Upgrade Help Topic
I have been recently thinking about an upgrade, Im on a budget so it cant be anything extreme, here are my basic choices:
I can Improve my graphics, or processing, but I cant choose both
If I choose graphics, here is what I have in mind:
ELSA GF3 64meg -> ATI Radeon 9500 PRO 128meg or MSI GF4 TI 4200 128meg
In this case I would keep my current processor, witch is a Athlon XP 1800
If i choose procesing...
Athlon XP 1800 -> Athlon XP 2700
also, in this case I would keep my GF3
I cant decide witch one to go for, Im am prety hard core into games, and i want to be able to play the games that will be coming around the end of the year. I have bechmarked my pc and it satys around 50-48 FPS in Unreal engine games, so considering how much more complex, Doom 3, Far Cry and Half life 2 are going to be, I need to have acceptable frames with those
One more detail, is that my PC is always on, so I cant have a graphics card that heats up easily, as I cant easily modify cooling for it
So what do u guys think, where will I get the most out of with games, procesing or graphics?
