I know my AGPs days are limited now so......should I wait for a lil while longer or should I jump into the PCI-E market. Is there something new coming soon that would make the current prices fall. I was told that PCI-E cards are a considerable jump over the AGP versions. If I do decide to do a swap I will also have to upgrade my : CPU, Mobo & Memory......
My Current Setup :
Windows XP Professional
LianLi Tower w/ 500w Power Supply
ASROCK K7S8XE Mobo
AMD Athlon XP2400+
1GB PC2700 DDR333 (2x512MB)
Dual Maxtor 120GB HDDs
PNY Nvidia 6600GT 128MB AGP
Dual Dell 2005FPW 20.1" Widescreen LCDs <<LOVE EM
I/O Magic DVD RW/R Drive
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live!
Altec Lansing 2100 System
Logitech USB Keyboard
Razer Copperhead Tempest Blue
Realtek PCI Fast Ethernet NIC
Thanks for any Suggestions - Travis
Here is a couple Pics of my system :
Why do you want to upgrade?
Is there a game out that doesn't play well on your computer?
My advice, which I have failed to personally heed on occasion and have always regretted: Buy for TODAY, not for tomorrow. You cannot future-proof your computer.
It would be different if you were still running win98 on a Tbird 1.4, but you're not. Your computer is up to snuff.
I am kind of curious how you ended up with a gig of pc2700 instead of pc3200.
The game F.E.A.R. is a real system hog..... Alot of games here lately seem to be that away.
Like : Qauke4, Doom3, PARIAH, LOTRs: BFME (Only when there is like 1000 characters on screen)...
Don't remember why I choose the PC2700. Built it in Spring of 04.
