I think my old machine just broke, and maybe time I get something new, so I thought I'd get some feedback. I'm looking for a budget PC that will still allow me to play some newer games, even though I mostly play older ones like Morrowind, Enemy Territory, and Sniper Elite.
Asus M2N-MX SE Plus
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+
Kingston DDR2 800 MHz 2x1 GiB
Asus GeForce 9500 GT
AMD Athlon 2 X2 255
Kingston DDR3 1333 MHz 1x4 GiB
Asus GeForce GT240
For comparison, let's take these games that I have tried on my old machine:
Fallout 3 -- runs perfectly on my old machine at native resolution (1440x900).
Borderlands -- doesn't run very well at all, lowest resolution (640x480) and still below 60 FPS.
Bad Company 2 -- plays bugger all, probably 10 FPS at lowest everything.
How well would the new machine perform against the older one, and is the setup good enough and worth its money?
