Thread: What Is A Better Rig ?

  1. #1
    Ok I got the money to do 1 or 2

    Rig 1

    Amd 64 bit 3400+

    ATI Radeon 9800 PRO 128mb Video Card

    Or Rig 2

    AMD Athlon 64 3200+

    ATI Radeon 9800 XT 256mb Video Card

    Which is better a faster cpu and slower video card or a slower cpu and faster video card ???
    I think a video card would be easier to upgrade. But its not that much slower of a cpu ??? :helpsmile:

    I'd go with rig 1 because of the faster processor and the video card is very easily upgradable.
    Gaint Antispyware is the #1 greatest Spyware/Adware cleaner ever created, I recomend it to everybody, even if you don't think you need it.

    Wait, save more money and buy Amd 64 bit 3400+ & ATI Radeon 9800 XT 256mb Video Card.

    If you are a gamer take Rig2 and if your not so addicted to games take Rig 1

    either save up a bit to get the 3400+ and 9800xt, or you will have to decide betweek the two.

    here is ur decision:
    do you like to play a lot of games? or do u only do work\surf web on ur computer?

    if u said games: rig 2

    if u said work\surf web: rig 1.

    its pretty obvious, but still you may not have thought of that

    Save up for enough for a 9800XT and a 3400. By then the 9800XTs price should have dropped drasticly, due to the new cards.

    theres really nothing wronge with the 9800 pro its a very good card, it will run all your games good, but the 9800 xt will run them better

    Give it a couple weeks I&#39;d say
    and I&#39;m guessing the 9800xt will go down to the price of a 9800pro, 9800pro the to a 9600xt, etc
    Just a guess though, couldn&#39;t tell you for sure....
