Build a new box or upgrade my old one? Tags: New Build Systems Last response: April 30, 2008 5:10 AM in Systems Share bluesguitar007 April 30, 2008 3:55:35 AM My current system setup is as follows: - Processor: Core 2 Duo E6400 @ 3.2 GHz using a Zalman 9700 - Mobo: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 - Video: Sapphire Radeon x1950 Pro 256MB @ 600/1566 also with a Zalman cooler - RAM: 2 GB (2 X 1 GB) Kingston DDR2 667 @ 800 MHz - HD: WD 250 GB 7200 RPM - Power: Enermax 500AWT 2 X 12V Rails @ 22A - Monitor: 17" Viewsonic LCD I plan on waiting for the Radeon 48xx and GeForce 99xx video cards to come out, but at that time should I build a new box from the ground up or just buy a new graphics card? I'll most likely be getting a new monitor as well, because gaming on a 17" with a Radeon 4870 would be a little ridiculous.
