Hey guys!
I need help choosing future parts... I want to buy a new cpu by next month and upgrade graphics later depends how much spent on cpu and how much i can gain...
My specs:
Intel Pentium 4 Ht 524 Socket 775 @ 4.0ghz
Abit Fatal1ty fp-in9 650i sli
EVGA 9600gso 384 mb version
Corsair Xms2 2gb 800mhz kit
Seagate 120gb sata drive
Dynex 400 watts
random 40gb pata drive
Windows Xp sp2

Ok first off i need a bugdet cpu priced $0-$100 dual cores at least and at least 2mb l2 cache. Im realy thinking about a e5200... if i buy that itll take me about 6 months to upgrade graphics card... if i buy the e2220 which only has 1mb chache, i can upgrade graphics in 4 moths, and if i buy e7300 ill upgrade graphics in a year...

Now for graphics... i have the 9600gso which i got brand new for $50. awesum card but idk if the 384mbs can keep up with new games... so i was thinking since motherboard is sli, would this system be good...
9600gso sli
or would it be better to w8 till newer cards come out.... maybe push 4870s lower or a new bugdet card comes out??
also can i sli the 9600gso 384mb with the 9600gso 768mb???

You will also need a new PSU when you upgrade your GPU...
