i am wondering if there is any Noticable advantage in gaming performance of a core 2 duo 6300 compared with a athlon 64 3000. (is it worth upgrading at the moment or am i better of buying a new agp card such as a x1950 pro)


the games i was most interested in are games such as oblivion, call of duty 2, half life 2, etc

Yes there is noticable difference in e6300 vs athlon 64 3000. You would benefit a lot:
Here is a TG cpu chart you can compare the results for the two procesers.

I dont think that they have e6300 but i c they have the e6400 which is close to e6300 just an overclock of .3GHZ.


The x1950 pro is a PCI-E card not an agp. IF you plan to get an e6300 the x1950 pro is an steal with prices around 200 buck and less (depending on a company). The x1950 pro is a good card for the price.

It would be wasted on a 3000+ anyway - you'd really want something like a 3500+ or better to make the most of the card. Of course, you can always overclock the 3000+ to 350+ speeds or better. ;)

Can you overclock your 3000+ by some 400-600MHz (2.2-2.4G but most of them get past 2.6) ; it would give it a boost to 3800+ levels and then you could see for a nice video card.
