AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ 2.8GHz
ASUS M2N-SLI AM2 NVIDIA nForce 560 SLI mobo
ASUS EAH4890/HTDI/1GD5 Radeon
PC Power and Cooling 500 watt PSU
I ran 3dmark06 and realized that I need a CPU on par with my ASUS 4890, any suggestions? I just replaced two XFX 9600 GTs with the ASUS 4890 and am debating if I should replace the mobo for one with an ATI chipset too.
haha oh yesss they have gotten better, not even comparable really. i haven't even overclocked the 4890 yet and its dominating anything i throw at it. i just have a huge ego and want a higher 3dmark score
Yeah i must agree about the RAM,but for CPU if the OP plays lots of RTS games then its better to get a new CPU otherwise since most of the games are GPU limited mostly then there won't be any problems running them,it mostly depends on the games the OP is playing
More memory will be useful as well, I would suggest getting a pair of 2Gb sticks rather than messing around adding two more 1Gb units. Unless you can source identical components, you could end up with an unstable system by mixing memory sticks.
