I am looking to upgrade my computer. I use the computer for playing WOW and sometimes Madden. Mostly WOW and no Apps.
This is my current system:
AMD Athlon 64 3500+
ASUS A8V-E DELUXE ACPI
I am not ready to go for the full up[grade to New MOBO and Vista. I am thinking of making that move in like a year. At that point I would like to do a big upgrade in the 2,000-3,000 range. However I was trying to see if a CPU , Video Card, and /or RAM upgrade is worth the money.
Here are the upgrades I was thinking about:
HiS Radeon X1950 Pro ICEQ3
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Dual Core Processor
I have 2 questions:
1. I am sure the Video Card is worth the upgrade, but do I need to upgrade CPU and is this the best CPU to upgrade too???
2. Should I consider going with Higher quality RAM or just upgrading to 2meg Generic RAM.
Again I Play World of Warcraft and am just trying to upgrade to something that is worth the cash for the next year..
Yes WOW is really the only game I play. The other thing I was thinking to upgrade to a flat screen and just wait to upgrade entire computer. I am using the CRT monitor which is nice but wondering if plat screen is worth the upgrade. Space is not an issue with me..
Yes I do see some lag from server, but I do think my video card struggles somtimes and I dont have the setting to high.. Would that CPU be able to run the Radeon X1950? Maybe I can go with monitor and new video card...lol I am liking the sound of a BIG monitor-
I cant say enough how helpful you this has been for me... Thanks for all the advice... I will start to look at Flat Screen Gaming Monitors now and put off the CPU Video upgrade for till i get my new screen..
