My computer now is 2.8 ghz CPU, 160gig HD, 1.5gig DDR400 ram, Radeon 9800pro VGA.
I like to play the newest games…and am getting some slow down on HL2…so I went out and bought…
3.8 ghz (equivalent) dual core CPU, 200gig HD, 2gig DDR400ram, and a 21,000nt graphics card…the GeForce 7800 GTX PCI-express.
I feel a bit queasy after making such a large purchase. At first I was going to get a Radeon X850…but after some research I saw I could get 2 GeForce 6800s for cheaper than 1 X850…and the X850 isn’t a huge amount better than one 6800.
But then I decided to go with one 7800GTX over two 6800s…even though it’s about 5000 more expensive. And this way in a year or so I can slap in another 7800 if I want to improve it even more.
Any experts want to chime in? I can still phone the shop and make adjustments for the next day or so.
