My new system has not arrived yet and I'm thinking of ordering a different system.

IS IT WORTH THE EXTRA 400 GBP?

Original order: Athlon 64 3200 ( 754 motherboard )
X800 XT

New order : Athlon 64 3800 ( 939 motherboard )
6800 Ultra

The change in graphics did not alter the price, just the different CPU and mothorboard.


What do you guys think, will the new spec system be loads faster and worth the extra dosh ? :rolleyes:

also still in 2 mind which graphics card to choose?

Well, yeah it will make a heck of a difference, but I'm not familiar with that currency, plus it is up to you really:confused:

jjjdup, assuming you live in the UK, I'd very much like to know where you are buying your new rig from and where you found your Athlon 64 3800.
