Quick Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey all...

Been awhile since I posted but I have a question:

I have recently upgraded my RAM, vid card and PSU. I was expecting to see a much greater in crease in performance but it has only been minor.

the only thing I have yet to upgrade is my processor. How much more of an improvement will I see switching from my relic pentium D-805 to the e6850 conroe? All my other pc stats are below.

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

You said you upgraded your RAM, vid card AND memory... RAM = memory, so I'm guessing you meant RAM and video card...

The ram doesn't play THHAAATT crucial a role in performance, so that would explain that...

The video card gives you most of a system's performance, and the "minor" improvement of which you speak is completely based on what your previous video card was... if it was say... a 8800GTS 640 or something, then yes, performance increase will be minimal... of course if not, this could also just mean your CPU is bottlenecking you

Lastly, an upgrade to a Conroe over your PentiumD will give you a veeerrryyy nice boost in performance and will eliminate any bottlenecking

I agree, you will see a dramatic increase in performance if you upgrade your CPU.

yes. sorry I did mean vid card. will edit that out.

and my previous card was geForce 7900gs. I kinda figured going to the conroe and ditching the icky 533 fsb-ness of mycurrent chip would do wonders. Thanks for the confirmation all.
