My Rig is outdated :( need advice on upgrades - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Get this Opteron 165 and OC the piss out of it. That's about as far as you can go with the 939 socket. I actually kind of miss my old 939 and 754 systems. Those were the days when amd was rubbing intel's face in the dirt.

That should be able to hit 3.0ghz and the board should be able to do the 333 FSB required to do that.

Since you are running XP, you don't really need over 2gb of ram. A new GPU and a ~3.0ghz CPU should help.
