A 7900 is also very easy on the power it takes to run it. For a nice upgrade get an Optron 146 ($79 USD Boxed) and some DDR-500 ram. That will give you 2.5Ghz without OC the RAM and alot of memory speed boost at the same time all on stock voltages. reccy June 6, 2007 11:49:51 AM WHat about a CPU upgrade though?
