Well I'm one of those AGP holdouts. I really want to do a upgrade but money is nothing I spend freely. I have a couple scenarios in my head on what to do. I would truely appreciate advice on what should I do. First off, here is my current setup.
Soltek Nforce3 754 socket motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ chip
Sound Blaster Audigy
PNY 6800 128 MB AGP
2x512 sticks of Kingston Valueram
NEC DVD burner
I'll start with this. I can upgrade the card and the ram. Get some XMS 2x1gb sticks worth. Then pickup that 7900GT AGP card.
I figured this would give me a solid 2 years of life adding on my premium PC gaming life. OR is it just a waste of dough. Also, would I see the benefits if I just upgraded the ram? I have a lot of programs running in the background but I want them there.
Ok here's the other scenario Sell my current setup and do this.
Thanks for the advice. Though that card you recommended though sweet looking is PCI-E. I'm just a sad sad man with AGP. Unless that was your recommendation for a card for my full system upgrade then thanks!
Oh that ram looks good too. Better + Cheaper = a happy me!
Well the reason I said AGP was because my old board was AGP. So it'll just be a Graphic card upgrade really.
OR I could have a complete system upgrade. The reason I was intrested in upgrading the AGP part is it'll be a good way to get some more longgivity out my current build. Then maybe 2 years from now upgrade fully to something that'll really be a super rig.
