I would have upgraded my CPU but i was tad bit late, the next thing u know, Socket A (462) is no longer "in". So i'm stuck with the AGP motherboard.
So i've been eyeing the only AGP 7600GT that's out now from Leadtek
and it looks really sweet! It's even faster than the 7800GS (AGP)!!!
So i'm ready to fork out $200 bucks here but is it worth it?
i've read the ridiculousness of coupling a fast GPU with a slow CPU, but
how bad could it be?
Should i buy the 7600GT or should i forget and save up for a brand new PCI-E system?
I badly want to play half-life 2 with optimal settings minus filtering at 1024*768 (i'll be cool with the black borders on my 19in) and the vga chart here did say 7600GT puts out a cool 94 FPS. But we are talking bout FX-60 system here, not my lame 2200+.
I'm just hoping for the holy grail of 60 FPS at all time during gameplay.
Is this possible or am i screwing myself over here?
