Recommended Posts

Hey, as you guys may notice its christmas time and im wondering what i should do with say 200 dollars? I got the case/mods. So far this is what i got to put into the case.

 

Amd xp2100+(pally)

Biostar M7vip kt333

Generic 512 pc2100

GeforceFx 5200 128 8x

WD 40gb 5200rpm

 

I mainly surf the net/game/watch movies.

everything VEGA said and toss the video card out for an ATI.

Yeah, the single biggest thing you can do to increase performance is get a new video card. You can get a 9700np on pricewatch for $194, then flash it to a pro like I did. :D

video will be ok son. im not that big into gaming. I got all the mods. I just need more performance. I was thinking maybe a Asus a7n8x-deluxe. and a 7200rpm hard drive. THen save up for pc3500 ram 2x256 (dual channel). The cpu is ok other then tha fact that it runs fairly hot. (41c idle on evercool pos).

I know where to get a mobo but where should i get the maxtor hard drive. Oh yeah with the mobo my video card will go from 4x agp to 8x so that will help a little plus combined with a hard drive and later ram it will kickass.

If you do stick with the NVIDIA card go with a GeForce 4 4200 instead... they out preform most of the FX's... serious... they messed up something in DX9...
