Both of you just told me two different things
I'm pretty surprised at the rarity of this question, has no one ever thought of getting the most out of their upgrades before?
OK so maybe if I specify my needs you guys'll be able to get a better view of what I'm looking for:
Let's suppose I want to play Doom 3 (at around 40-ish FPS on medium). Now I have two options:
*My current CPU paired up with a decent GPU;
*My on-board 946gz for graphics while rocking a dual-core processor (C2Duo e7xxx at max) in the same price range as that GPU.
Between these two options, which should I choose, given that I'm only going to play games of the 2006 era? Would getting a better CPU run my games without a dedicated GPU?
And thank you SOO much for answering, I thought I'd get about zero answers
