I would like to ask some advice, I have an opportunity to purchase either a new video card or a new cpu for my system. I currently have:
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Processor S939 (Venice or Clawhammer?) Video: BFG 6800GT OC 256MB AGP Motherboard is PCIExpress and AGP capable Games played are: Oblivion, NWN2, TotalWar2 and other Strat or RPG type games, I normally don't buy FPS.
My question is for the type of games I play should I invest in a faster CPU or a faster Video? Your advice is greatly appreciated.
More aboutvideo card
Video card for sure.
It'll be wise to go for a PCI-E mobo, and something like X1950Pro.
Yeah, I'd definitely go for something like an X1950pro. I've seen them on neweeg for around $200.
My thoughts were leaning towards a new video card and in particular the X1950 Pro as well. I don't think any games I am playing will take advantage of a dual cpu. Currently it is actually a tossup between the X1950Pro, X1900GT or wait for the X1650XT.
go for the X1950Pro, it's a good investment
Agreed, i like this one the best. Love the Acclero X2 cooler on it:
