post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I recently bought a XFX 6800gs and now want to know what part in my pc needs upgrading. I think it should be the processor. My specs are in my sig. If I need to tell something else please tell me! Thanks

Your ram is easily the bottleneck in your system.

Everything you have is pretty nice except for the RAM. PC2100? Try finding some 2x512mb PC3200 since that's the norm around these parts. If you can't, try to find the same brand of the same RAM and you can try running it in dual channel.

Agreed. Some new RAM would do you good. Than maybe after that a new Processor.

Fuu-eee. I think you need to upgrade your sound card.

Make that five for memory. (Just in case four in a row was not enough)

Cool, thanks. Im guessing the G.SKILL is the best? And I was looking at other G.SKILL memory and for thirty more dollars I can get 2GB . Is that worth the money?

Um, yes. If you can throw down $194, take a look at mine - G.Skill Zx.
