My Compaq puter (Model # 7947) has the following specs.:
-600 MHz Athlon CPU
-TNT2 Ultra G card
-Microsoft Windows 98
-30 Gig HardDrive
-128 bit SoundCard
I want to upgrade my system into a killer gaming machine, any suggestions? Would upgrading just the graphics card into a readeon 9600 Plus pro deluxe (Whatever its called) give me fast framerates? Would Upgrading to a 1000 MHz CPU improve lots? One more ques., how dose the TNT2 Ultra compare to the readeon?
If you want a killer gaming machine, IMO you should build one from scratch. You would need to upgrade your ram, cpu, and video card. If you swapped the TNT with a new radeon, you would only notice a minor improvement. Your ram and cpu could not keep up with that card. Definatley do some research and build yourself a new rig...if your short on cash save up for a while, you want your machine to rock.

You remember the original Radeon DDR? Now it's a little faster and called the Radeon 7500. Anyway, you can find them for around $50 if you look long and hard, and your game will improve by about 150%. If your card is a TNT2 Vanta or M64, your game will improve by about 300%.
