Re: Upgrading computers?
Artifacts....Graphically? Artifacts are visual messups that are a result of a too-highly-clocked videocard. For less than 200 bucks, i got a GeForce FX 5900XT, it works for the newest games like HL2 and D00m3, and gets pretty good frames. Definitely, instead of getting like....an Athlon XP 3200+ or 3400+, get a 3000+ and a Tt Extreme Volcano 12 and OC the proccy to a 3400+, it's much cheaper than getting an expensive processor. If you get a new mobo, get an nForce 2 chipset, it's pretty good for non-64 systems. I'd recommend the Albatron KX18DPro I/II, as it has stood up in many a benchmark. The 9600SE is a pretty good card for the money, but junk it for an nVidia 5900XT, or the 6600GT, or go Radeon and get the 9800 Pro or 9600XT. Well, that's my 2 cents. Peace, kiddies.
