Default Re: upgrade list

money, dont waste your money now and but ATI'd SLI at the end of the year, it is a waste. From your current system, it doesnt look like you need and SLI. If you were a gamer you would already have a gaming rig. I am sorry i sound harsh but you just dont seem like you'll really use it. You have a celeron but you are upgrading to SLI? It justs doesnt add up to me. I know myself i feel i need the best when hell, i wont take advantage of it. Nothing out there takes advantage of the SLI especisally if you are going to buy a AMR later. 50% of the games don't support the SLI stuff. You would be fine with a AGP card which you couls get a better card for cheaper. I am not saying this to change your mind nor get down on you, it is justs my opinion and i apologize if it seems harsh.

yea why do these people need these amd athlon fx-55 and 6800gt, you will never even use the power that this components can offer so why waste your money on it? to be a show off? like my rig plays games fine with no hicups or lag at all and its not all that great, and even now i have not met a program that can bring my pc down to its knees...this computer parts industry is just gettin richer and richer while you guys buy uneccesary parts...
