Hello everyone, I want to upgrade and build a new computer. I currently have a AMD 64 (socket 754) and would rather not spend the money to upgrade to 939. Is it true what i've heard that socket 754 doesn't support the dual ram funtion? Here is what i'm looking at getting:
-AMD 64 (socket 754) *already have in my current compy*
"Is it true what i've heard that socket 754 doesn't support the dual ram funtion?"
Yes, the socket 754 processors have single channel mem access only, but that does not equate to a large performance impact...
IS your upgrade design around getting a PCI-e board for better gaming?
(You might be able to extend your current AGP rigs life for gaming simply by adding a mid-range AGP video card for about $140...look for a 6600GT or vanilla 6800 in AGP, *if* your current board has an AGP slot)
I currently have a x700 video card and it isn't a bad card. I want to upgrade for a few reasons. The baby atx form factor is attractive for lanning and stuff and I wanna have solid frame rates for when Oblivion comes out in march. Also be nice to have more than 60-80 fps when playing Counter Strike
