I have a dilema at the moment, i was going to upgrade my whole system but the money just isn't there right now. I would still like to upgrade half of my system but the question is, by doing which half will i get better performance in games like cs:s, bf2.
I currently have:
athlon 64bit 3000, socket 939
ati radeon 9800pro 8x agp video card
1 gig (2x512) pc3200 cruscial ram
i was going to upgrade to, a amd 64 3800 x2 (dual core), a sli-express mb, and a 7800gt video card and keep the rest of my system the same. well... the money isn't there after xmas so i'm going to have to do this in two steps.
my options are: keep everything else the same and upgrade to the 3800x2 processor and later upgrade video card and mb.
or: downgrade to a 6800gt video card and a new motherboard, keeping the old processor.
which do you think would have the most immediate impact on gaming?
