Looking for a little advice guys. I currently have the following system:
Gigabyte K8N Ultra 9
WD 200 GB IDE HD
This system is my gaming/general use system. Which do you think would improve my performance more, a card like a 7900GS or a Raptor HD? I know right now the HD is a major bottleneck due to the old interface. I can get either one for about the same price. What do you think?
i personally from experience find gpus to be the most satisfying of upgrades. thats generally when you REALLY see a big difference. yeah, a raptor would be sweet, but i don't think the *harm* from your current hdd would outweigh the benefit of a new graphics card. my personal opinion. plus, as raptors are kinda small, and games are kinda big, you'd probably wanna keep your current hdd also, and then you'd have the whole loading-off-the-bigger-slower-hdd dealie... me say graphics upgrade.
