Ok here is my current setup:
Pentium D 925 3.0ghz 4mb l2cache
Intel D865gsa micro-atx
Corsair 512x2 ddr400 dual channel
XFX 7600gs 256mb 128bit agp 8x
now this case is already on its way
now this case fits matx and atx so this way i when i upgrade it will be cheaper because i can keep my Lite On Drive, Harddrive, and Case, and i will be buying an antec 500
later because it has removable chords and will better put up with a new rig but my 450 will do for now
so now on to what im thinking of upgrading too
Keep my Pent D 925 3.0ghz (just for now to make things cheaper, im getting a job when i turn 16)
EVGA Mobo $95(not pcix16 2.0 but it will be alright)
OCZ Gold 2x2gb DDR2 800 Dual Channel Kit $90
ASUS 8800gt 256mb
now do you think my processor will keep up for now or will i be looking for a core2duo right away? thanks!
i also may go with 2gb's of ram to make it cheaper, and maybe go with the hd3850 but i will make these decisions when i have the money, but until then i want to know if it will bottleneck the video card because maybe the cpu is too slow or wutever? thanks!
