Hi I want to upgrade my current CPU (FX53 @ 2.4Ghz, 1meg cashe).
The thing is I don’t know what CPU to buy. I am looking at either the 4400+ or the 4800+.
My current system
Asus A8N SLI Premium
1gig Kingston hyperX memory 2x 512 (getting 2x 1gig same brand soon)
4x 74gig western digital Raptor HDD’s
1x 160 Sata Seagate HDD
2x 160 Seagate HDD’s on USB 2.0 in external SATA housing
Xfx 7800GT (getting the 2nd one in 2 days time)
Apoen 700watt 4x quad 12volt rails
Sony DVD writer
Would the 4400+ be faster than my current CPU?? I really do not want to spend a lot of cash on a CPU right now.
Yeah, I got it up to 2.2 so far. Solid as a rock man. The Corsair RAM is giving me a bit of a fit though. I just got some new Crucial Ballistix sticks installed in it so, hopefully they won't give me fits. Gotta love the opty man. Its sweet!
Aren't they the same as a64 4000+, except they have the fx name. Unless they have more features but i doubt it. Yeah pretty much as a rule, the gpu will always bottleneck the cpu, unless you have a crap ass bottom of the line cpu.
