Puter upgrade......

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Right now I am running an
AMD 3500+ 64bit With winchester Core 939
Asus AV8 Deluxe Mobo
1 Gig of Geil Dual channel Memory 3200
Crap Video Card and dual 250 gig Sata Hard Drives
6 Cooling Fans.

Im always looking for the latest and greatest but have been to busy lately to keep up. I was wondering if i should upgrade to the AMD X2 Dual Core 4800 or wait for next year when they have the "multi core" processors come out. I read about them in PC Magazine. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I think you should upgrade that vid card way before your cpu! A 6800 vanilla is nice if your on a budget. Possible 4 unlocking pipelines and 2 shaders I believe. If oyu got a little more the 6800gt and ultra are nice along with the x850's.
