Graphics vs CPU?
Hi guys, im looking for advice. Im buying a computer in a week or so and after surfing the internet, i came up with two possible rigs, their only noticeable diference is the CPU and Grpahics Card, everything else is pretty much the same, ill write them down:
1.- CPU: Core 2 Duo: E4400
Graphics Card: ATI HD 2400PRO 256MB
2.- CPU: Dual-Core E2160
Graphics Card: Nvidia 8500GT 256MB
I've read that for gaming, Bigger Cache means better performance, meaning that the E4400 is better suited for this task, but when it comes to the Graphics Card, the HD 2400PRO just won't do (Nvidia Beat this Graphic Card with their 8400GS Card). So, the E2160 might not be the best CPU for gaming due to its smaller cache, but a better Video Card would compensate this?. Which one will perform better in apps like Gaming, Streaming Media and Audio Encoding Tasks?
