Re: Computer Help (too slow)
remember that AMD is the choice for all gamers but intel works as well, just not ....as well....
a 64x2 3800+ is about $300 but you can get a dual core intel for $130 last time i checked. for price/performance ratio you can't really beat intels. can't think of an AMD rig where i can get a dual core, decent mobo, and 7900GT for about $500. look around for Pentium Ds, a mobo with one or two PCIe x16 slots, and a 7600GT. that could be around $400 even.
forgot to take into account the CAD => USD thing but $400 USD is $445 CAD so i'm still close i think.
at tigerdirect i found a Pent D 805 for $150
an ABIT SLI mobo for $70
and a 7600 GT for $170
So it Goes.
