I'm getting a new puter this afternoon.
What spec has everyone else got?
Athlon Xp3000+, 2x256 2700 ddr (Dual channel Nforce 2 goodness), Radeon 9800 pro 128 meg, Nforce2 with the inbuilt 5.1 soundstorm. All wrapped up in a nice Shuttle XPC. Oh and Iiyama Visionmaster 1451, liteon 52x32x52 Cd-rw.
What would you recommend?
15" TFT monitor or
17" CRT monitor
17 inches it is then!
I have xp2600+ on AOpen 400 Max NForce2 mobo, with 512 ddr and a GF4 ti4400 video card.
I don't use the onboard sound but Audigy 1 sound card I have.
I have a LG Flatron 19 inch CRT monitor
The memory is pc2100 , a hangover from my last system, Im getting 2 512 sticks of PC2700 soon, and hopefully replce the video card too. Id like to buy another NVidea, but I expect it will be a Radion 9700/9800 pro.
Which in your opinion is better
The GeForce cards or Radeon cards?
the reason for all these questions is that I don't want to be left with a shite system after a couple of weeks!
How much you spending on the GFX?
Throd...the RAM change wouldn't lead to a big speed increase, unless it was holding up your CPU FSB. I would spend the money elsewhere.
About £100 - £150 quid.
Or if you can find any a 9500 series (Dodgy naming but it is better then the 9600)
Cool, I'll get them to whack one in then.
Going to pick it up around half 5 so I'll be in the preview server once I've got my modem installed and games loaded on. I'll have to download ET again tho! Takes about an hour - even on broadband!
Well ,the existing ram is 266 fsb from my old mobo/cpu, so I thought the new stuff at 333mhz , to match current cpu, would improve things, particularly if I double the amount
Id be interested to know your opinion though m8, as a new vid card is in the pipline too.
Bear in mind too, that im going to try to build another pc out of all the old bits, so I'll need to get some more ram sooner or later anyway .
Well I've got a intel 2.53 p4 512meg mem and a GeForce4 MX420 (I know, I KNOW). Seems to do the job ok at the minute.
That's the only reason you should do it. You'll be lucky to get a 10% performance increase by improving the RAM speed. If its getting reused though, its not so much of a waste of money.
Right, so I might be better off getting a new vid card first. I wonder how much better a 9700pro is that a ti4400 though .
Take a look.
I get frame rates in the 100's now, rather than the 30's I got before. Yay \o/
NForce 2 Mobo and sound
512Mb 2700 DDR
120gb Samsung HDD @ 7200 rpm
256 mb DDR Geforce 4 FX5600
Will, just looked at those tests, the 9700 pro is streets ahead of a ti 4600 ! Omg
i also notice that the tests done with a xp2700 result in a slightly higher speed than with a p4 3.06, so yar boo sucks etc to all them non athlon philistines
