I am thinking about a new system. Would it be better to get a 512 mb card with faster processor than to get 2 256 cards with slow processor?
I have a 2800 amd system with 7600 gs agp. I am thinking dual core of course and sli. 2 megs of ram. I want under 2 grand. I have a 19 inch crt and a cheap but adequate speaker system. I want to be ready for ALAN WAKE which needs vista. I want to be ready for Crysis. Those are the next two DOOM and HL2. People bought new systems for those games. Trouble is no specs are listed. People try to get me to build my own but after the software purchase and warranty I don't think it is worth it. You are assured of compatiblity with a prebuilt. I will get a 500 watt PS.
The bestsite I found is cyberpowerpc.com. I have built a pc about 20 times on their site checking for most bang for buck. The 27 inch mon is tempting but I really don't need a monitor. I know I need an intel cpu dual core but which is the bargain?
