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.
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.
