I'm planning to upgrade my old PC in the next few weeks. I was wondering if the following added things are good enough to play new and upcoming games on?
AMD Athlon X2 6000+
ASUS M2N-E-SLI (Chipset AMD 480X crossfire)
Sapphire ATI X1950PRO, 512MB (X2 for Crossfire use)
Corsair 1024 MB DDR2 675 PC5400 XMS2-5400 (X2)
Is this good enough to play games on? Or is it better to go with a single ASUS EN8600GTS/HTDP/256M which has support for DX10. Also what PSU do I need to run it all together smoothly? Thanks for the time.
Thanks for the input andybird123 and turboflame, really appreciate it.
I'm on a tight budget (€250 max for the videocard), so high-end videocards are out of the question for me. An 8800 is not for me atm. So it's cool for me to let go of DX10 right now, and just go with a really good DX9 card right? As you said, I want to run Crisis smoothly on atleast 1024x768 with some of the medium/low settings. I can buy the 8800 when prices start to cool down next year.
I guess X1950 pro it is then, unless a geforce chipset is better... Going to check some benchmarks.
