ok if i have this current configuration

Athlon 3200 barton
msi k7n2 delta 2
1 gig corsair value at 2.5-3-3-6 (3-3-5 seemd unstable*)
ati brand 9800 pro 128 meg

what else can be done to get some more performance?
is that the most usefull vid card i can use?
is it worth tossing an extra gig sticvk of memory in it?
and when my computer boots up it says my memory is running at 200 mhz
is that right??

and if i was to build a new machine to have 2 computers capable of playing Dark age of Camelot and Halflife 2
cheaply of course

anyone think athlon 64 3200 939
bfg nforce 2 mobo
fopr now the memory in my old machine
and what vid card?
must be as good as current machine or better
but6 with a budget of like 700 dollars
right now i have in my head p[rices worked out

\\athlon 3700 $225
bfg mobo $99
antec sonata 2 case and PS $99
and a vid card not sure wich one though
would have to say worth like 200 bucks?

im not entirely worried about Overclocking
more or less being as good or better then my current machine
i cannot have somethign worse =)

any feed back thank you

The 9800Pro shouldn't be held back by your 3200 too much, but the X850XT PE and the 7800GS are the best for AGP.. I think the 7800GS walks all over the X850XT PE though. Not a bad price either! ($305 or so at Monarch)

Well, if you're just lookin to upgrade the barton rig, then the 7800GS would be a nice upgrade, and the barton would hang in there...but it won't let the video card shine either.

I'd save your money for your next build though.

Just my opinion, and a humble one at that.

OEM is just like retail except for the most part, it'll be just the card; You won't be getting a manual or any of the accessories that would come in retail.

i have the same prosessor and i was thinking abought geting a 7800 or 6800 but after i did some reading and reading i think it just might as well be best to start a new system with PCI-E and somthing with a AMD 64 socket you can do it for around 750 to 790 see my thread in this section.
