    Hi there,
    Im about to upgrade my processor and motherboard from a AMD 2ghz with
    768MB ram and was wondering which would be the best setup? Im into gaming
    [esp Battlefield 1942 and online play] and dual monitor when working. Is an
    AMD 64 or Pentium 4 better - or should I try to get a dual core? Memory will
    be upgraded to about 1gb or so, and about a 512mb nvidia graphics either
    way. Operating system isnt a problem as have both 32bit and 64 bit XP. My
    main worry is processor.

    Thanks anyways

    Simon

    I would go with the AMD dual core. I would get a CPU with 1MB L2 cache as
    apposed to the 512Kb. I would also add at the very minimum 1 GB RAM.
    (possibly 2 GB). Make sure the ram is a high speed gaming RAM Ram is
    relatively inexpensive and can drastically increase performance.
