I would like to upgrade my old system - AthlonXP 2600+,Ecs KT600 mb,470w psu,1gb Samsung ddr400,Nvidia gs5900 agp,2 drives 1 ide the other sata.Would it be worth my while to upgrade to 2 gigs ram,Ati Radeon HD3850 & 600w psu ? Or would the old cpu be a bottleneck & the upgrade would be for nought?
Yeah, I guess that makes sense. The HD 3850 costs 3 times more and would probably not work at its best in that PC. I'm guessing it would still do better than the HD 3650, but not enough of a difference to justify an extra $80.
