alrighty, so ivew got a little extra money, so before i buy my comp, i was wondering which i should get...
-(939-pin) AMD ATHLON64 3500+ CPU w/ HyperTransport Technology[+130]

-NVIDIA Geforce 6800 GT 256MB 16X PCI EXPRESS VIDEO CARD[+231] leadtech

please take price into concideration, we aren't rich, and dont reply something like "save up more for the 6800GT" or "just get the _____"

BTW before one of these my system:
3000+AMD Ath64
1024 Ram
6600GT leadtech

Honestly with the new video card's around the corner it's a waste to get a better video card, when it will be antique a month later

And it's pointless to get a 3500+ when yours is just fine

Thats bogus. The server will kick a satalite user because it takes so long to transfer information packets.

The advantage of Stalite is the SIZE of the packets.

Either should be impossible for curent games, unless your playing ARC.

And if he's thinking about satalite, then he obviosuly cant get a line, much like I can't. To get cable, you must live near a line (I dont, line ends 5+ miles down the road) or live near a telephone switch box for dsl (I'm atleast 5 miles from one of those babies).
