Default Do Your Stuff!!!

ok ladies, i've slowly but not 100% drifted away from SLI config. i want to play CSS, HL2, DOOM3 high settings with no lag. so i was wondering if this set-up would work with me trying to do this. right now in CSS im getting 20fps, 30fps max, which really sucks because in times of shooting im stuck to 10-11fps. ok here goes.


AMD - Athlon-64 2.0Ghz, S-939 32/64 Bit, 512K, (3200+), Retail Box

ABIT AV8 (S939 K8T800PRO,Dual-DDR400, SATA RAID, 6CH AUDIO, GB-LAN, Firewire, 4USB2.0)

OCZ 1024MB Kit Value PC-3200 Dual Channel DDR (512x 2) 3-4-4-8 (Ltd. Lifetime)

ATI 9800 pro 128mb "all-in-wonder" 8x agp (only because i already have this)



ok i was wondering if this will do what i want it to do. i just checked and theres like 30 of you guys on so i figure this is one of the best tmies to ask. ok go on do your stuff

AMD - Athlon-64 2.0Ghz, S-939 32/64 Bit, 512K, (3200+), Retail Box

GIGABYTE GA-K8NF-9 (S-939 NF-4, 1xPCI-E 16X, 4DDR, GbL, S-ATA RAID,Firewire-b-,8CH)

lol sry about triple posting, but didnt want to click on edit, <a href="http://www.ntsearch.com/search.php?q=computer&v=56">computer</a> was lagging at the <a href="http://www.ntsearch.com/search.php?q=time&v=56">time</a>., yea i was thinking pci-e


this is the easiest question i can ask. what is the minimum system to get no lag on doom 3 high settings and most other games? i have to know if AGP will cut it or if i should go pci-ex too. but answer my which system part of the question first. if anyone one here can play doom 3 high settings with no lag please post specs of your system for me to compare to

i have pci-e (as u can tell) and let me tell u... i had a reular 4x/8x agp and the results differ to quite some extent. the x300 isnt the best pci e but for the money and what it does its stilla rpetty good card. i just got it because thats all i could have afforeded at the time. the card i really want to get is:http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...102-463&depa=1
either that or the x850. damn nice cards... but i really want the x800 all in wonder but i cant find a place that has itfor pci e yet. ah well.
