Upgrade whole computer or just get the graphics card i am looking at

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am condering an upgrade at the moment and just wondering if i should bother doing a total new PC or not. My current PC is a
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2400+ (stock 2Ghz OCED to 2.6Ghz (out performs a Athlon 64 3800+))
RAM: 2Gb DDR 400 Dual channel
Graphics Card: Radeon 9600 XT 256mb (OCED to 600Mhz Core and 600Mhz memory)
HD Space: 700Gb total

I was just thinking of getting a HIS Radeon X1600 Pro 256mb AGP version.

My opinion.Try and hold out with that setup,save up until am2 comes out and dx10 which wil be used in vista.Also ifyou want to use vista minimum specs are supposedy pritty high.Its a good card.

He means the FLASH chat feature on the Front page. Vista will be Differnt quite abit i think once its actually released. If you are looking to get a new system wait till DX10 and Conroe are out.
