Should I upgrade or not.?
 


Currently have a Winfast 6600GT, so with only a P4c 3.2 Gig and 1Gig of Dual
channel ram.

Intel 875 chipset, Gigabyte GA-8I875 Ultra MoBo,485 Watt PSU.

Go for a 7900 GS AGP or the lower 7600 GT AGP.

Or just forget it.


Like to play with some of the newer games.

Thanks..

Buy a new $3000 god box or nothing at all.
IMHO.
Games on a pc = money hole, a boat might be cheaper.

That is not what I posted the article for, plus I have very little money and
for the odd game its just not worth spending $3000 that will be obsolete in 2
years time..
