Did I make a good choice? Tags: New Build Systems Last response: November 26, 2009 2:00 AM in Systems Share romeonmya November 26, 2009 1:48:15 AM Hi everyone Hope you all having a good day. Well I recently bought some parts for a new system build. I was wondering did I do well cause my friend says I could have done better with the $400 upgrade budget I had. Here are my old specs: Intel Pentium d 820 Nvidia 6600gt 128mb ddr3 1gb ddr 2 ram New Specs: Amd Phenon x2 BE 3.1 ghz Nvidia 9800gt 1gb ddr3 Pci-e 2.0 2gb ddr2 ram 800mhz Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H Motherboard Link to bundle I bought http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... And one last question. It has a onboard ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics. Would it be better than my 9800gt? More about : make good choice hunter315 November 26, 2009 1:54:12 AM Pretty good for $400 but i would have dropped a bit more onto the GPU if you are going to be gaming but its going to be a significant upgrade for you. The 4200 is very weak relative to the 9800GT, its actually slightly weaker tahn your old 6600GT, its only really good for HTPCs or very light gaming at 1024x768. m 0 l romeonmya November 26, 2009 2:00:03 AM I ran Crysis at 1280x1024 and it recommended gamer settings so im thinking if it runs crysis it will run COD4. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
