    Re: Decisions...Decisions...

    Shouldn't your 2400+ run faster than that?

    My old computer has a 1800+ that runs at 1.53 Ghz.

      Re: Decisions...Decisions...

      its either a 2400 or a 2200 but it runs at 1.2Ghz and its lame, five years ago i use to have a tin can that was the perfect Room heater, it was only 800MHz but it did the job fine for diablo 2.

      ive tried overclocking it but the best i can get it to is to 1.4 but it doesnt do much of a difference, and higher then 1410 and as soon as i "set" it to that my system hangs, im useing CPUCooL as my overclocker..

      EDIT: i retryed overclocking my CPU but my system hung again, does anyone have a Safe and Good overclocking program? as ive tried a few now and they just make my system hang, my PLL is a VIA 950910 af
      on CPUCooL i found it and it listed it as a 950910 and it worked, but now it doesnt work...

        wouldnt matter, you wont see a big increase with that rig :/ but your new one looks good as long as you get the 8800 but I would get a 7900 GS to hold you while you wait for the GTX...

          what games are u playing atm? if u still play mainly bf2, i think that an 8800 would be overkill/unecessary.

          mean while, this can help a tiny bit for ur 5700LE

                Ok first off, DONT DO SLI!!!!!!! I dont know how much a 7600GT costs where you are, but you will NOT get double the performance, in fact running at a res of less than 1600x1400 you will not get more than 30% increase. Not worth the $$$ you have to spend. So instead, get one good card, like an 8800 GTS 640MB or GTX. Another thing, is your current GPU AGP or Pci-e, makes a bigg diff in what cards you can and cant get.

                These cards will run fine on anything like a 7600GT or better, if you want to future proof though, make sure you get a DX10 card.

                      Thanks for the advice, i think im going to try to find a seller who can sell me a rig with.

                      AMD Athlon Dual Core @ 3.0Ghz
                      4GB DDR2 Ram
                      Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTS

                      then after i get that ill be upgrading the GTS to a GTX because i cant wait for Crysis to come out it looks so SWEET!

                      ps:thanks for the info on the SLI cards, the thing with sli is one card is for GFX and the other is just more RAM that goes to were any is needed, and they cost the same as a GTX anyway
