smart to start with a tuner system. the hard drive although ide, will not affect ur gaming performance. although sata has thinner cables which will help keep airflow through gaming sessions. ati x800xl is a sweet gpu. a large majority of gamers own that card, so ur going to be getting good fps.
ram - good choice to go to 1 gig
power supply = nice, btw what ps are you going to buy?
other than that, will game perfectly, its an amd afterall:)
Hi guys I am a gamer, but I dont have the buck to buy a geek 3000 dollars pc only to game. I just want to run games like hl2 doom 3 wow etc, getting good fps (70-100 at least) Im thinking on buying the emachines model cuz my budget is like 1200 and I cannot buy online ...
I m gonna upgrade this:
. RAM add 512 more kingston pc322 (400mhz) 100$
. Video card to ati radeon x800 XL 256 mb ram pci-e 300$
. Power Supply Unit to 420 - 480 W output 50$
I think its enough to game smooth and sexy; by the way there are some issues I need u guys to help me find out.
1. ATA HD. The latest and sexiest HD technology is SATA, but idk the main difference and if this will affect my gaming purpose.
2. what is the core of the AMD Athlon 64 3200+? In retails there are like San Diego, Venice, Newcastle.
If any of you is gamer, and u have bought this comp, please give me your overall gaming.
