Which is the better setup?
Apr 25, 2011, 1:21 PM
I currently use
a XFX 8300 motherboard
DDr2 800Mhz ram 2GB (4 slot board)
8600 GT 512Mb
Dual core 4000+ (2.10Ghz)
I also have a intel core duo 2.66Ghz
Foxconn board (supports up to DRR2 667mhz) ( 2 slot board)
So my question is should I go for the higher CPU or the faster Mhz ram?
(There different socket types so can not put intel into my Xfx board)

Go for the faster CPU, RAM frequency makes a surprisingly small difference.

Ah ok thanks,
Just put the new system together and It turns on fans all start, but I get no signal on monitor, nothing comes up. Tried the on board graphics and a graphics card :S
