I have a AMD Athlon64 3.0 and 1GB of memory with a 6800 Video card.
I am looking to upgrade soon, and am wondering where i can get the best bang for my buck or if I should wait awhile. Nobidy does performance comparisons any more between supoer old and super new. I really want to know how much performance I can expect and at which price point. Thanks for your advice.
Are you on socket 754 or 939? If you're on 939, you could upgrade to a dual-core CPU; if you're on 754, you're stuck to a single-core CPU.
I'll second Prozac's reccomendation to wait a while for quad-core CPUs, next-gen video cards, and Windows Vista. You still have a decent computer, one that will play any game out there, so it won't kill you to wait.
