Howdy,

I have a 1.8ghz AMD64 processor and a ATI Radeon x1600 series GFX card. (also i got one gig of ram but i will fix that later...)I know that the processor is outdated so which should i buy? My current Motherboard is also outdated so which motherboard should i buy and which CPU to go with it? Also one last thing i need a Mobo capable of using both my current AGP GFX card and can possibly in the future use PCIe cards. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me,
Thanks, Fluffman

You could buy an Xbox 360; you don't have to update that one.

ok i'll take the first answer first.

XBOX 360's are lame (and just for the record PS3's are a rip off and are even lamer. Nintendo Wii all the way...)

Secondly, i'm not trying to show off...(by saying i have an outdated rig how in any way am i showing off?) i just know a lot of people visit these forums who know a lot about Computer hardware. So Kinfe_X if that aint you then kindly go find someone else to insult.

Oh and don't turn this into a console vs PC war please.

Afaik, AGP + PCI-E combo boards are pretty rare and maybe not even all that great.

I'd advise you to go straight to PCI-E. Keep in mind also, that DX10 is around the corner.

X1900XT cards are cheap these days. I got a X1900XTX myself ; totally love that card (even though the X1950XTX seems very tempting)

As for cpu ; Core 2 Duo

Ah, phew. Someone does indeed have a heart in these forums.

Thanks, Knot3D. You showed me that these forums arent full of *******s.

knife_X, get a life. Leave fluffman alone, he was seeking help, not an insult.

I would say just a get a Xbox360.. They rule. Plus if you have Xbox games and you pay the extra 100 dollars (might be less now) you can play those Xbox games on the 360. Then if you want to get XBL (50 dollars a year+the hook-up cord=20 dollars maybe?) Xbox360 all the way http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


But instead of upgrading a PC just buy a new one.. Alot easier and in some cases cheaper.

Motherboard: (Got AGP & PCI-EXPRESS) Asrock - Socket 939 - ATX ULi M1695 (939DUAL-SATA2) - 8CH / SATA / Raid / Lan / PCI-Express


Processor: AMD Athlon 64 x2 4600+ / 2.4GHz Socket 939 Dual Core


Cost around 300euro.


Don't buy an Xbox 360, better buy Wii, cause with it you can do things you can't do with PC.


Fluffman wait til I finnished school in 2 years then I can buy a new compute for ya http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif I'll earn around 2700euro after tax. So I got around 1800euro or something to spend on what I want.

I was thinkin about buyin a new one but for me being 15 i really dont have the cash.

This yeah i allready have to buy a Nintendo Wii, a huge windscreen TFT monitor, and loads more games. For someone without a job i think adding a new pc to that list would be pushing it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Dude if your getting a Wii don't get SCDA for PC get it for Wii! The Wii looks pretty cool but I myself do not like the controls.

I like them, just be creative. You want a round control and use it as a sword ingame? No thanks! Btw, they've made usual controlls too, that you put the Wii remote into and it will work fine! =)

Ya I know.. Nintendo is being very creative (not sarcasm) I mean these controls are new never ever seen before nothing like them. I kind of want to buy a Wii but sadly I don't have enough money.. But now that you told me they have normal controllers I might just try as hard as I can..

I've heard it'll cost around 200euro, you can't afford that? You HAVE to buy it looks hilarious! LOOK!

Splinter Cell: Double Agent is coming for Wii, I saw an announcement.

Yeah it won't be as powerfull, but it's better price and it is like nothing else. So it's worth it, who says graphic goes before gameplay? =)
And I saw some screens of SC DA @ Wii, and it looked really nice.

fluffman
09-17-2006, 06:24 AM
powerful doesnt mean anything!

Ok so that graphics may look old... SO WHAT!

I would rather buy a XBOX 360 and a Wii for the same price as the PS3...

exactly... the main reason i dont have an xbox right now is i dont really like game pads that much... Mouse and Keyboard all they way.

Thats why i like the Wii. Its new and exciting...

i guess you forgot to say "IMO", because thats all it is, your OPINION.

again, opinion/ personal preferance. personally, i prefer not being crouched over a computer desk and having to contort my fingers all over the place. i also like having analog control over character movement, something that really comes in handy in splinter cell.

It's that i have a good gaming pc, but i always play SC with the pc gamepad..which is now a Logitech pad but i think i'll buy a XB360 pad for SC DA ..The analogue control just feels THAT much more tactile to Sam's moves imho.

Hmmm not the best option IMO.

First AMD lost from intell with the conroe processors.

This would be my build:

Conroe 6600 ( costs around 300 euro, Much better then AMD (slightly worse then the best amd processor, but that one is much more expensive)

MOtherboard, dont go cheap on this one buy one with the intell 975 chipset.

But now u need new DDR2 ram to, costs around 200 euro for 2 gig.

Buy a cheaper PCI card wich are better the most AGP cards.

If u wanna go cheap: Buy the wii, its fun, its cool and always runs ur games. (Not a fanboy, got xbox360, but i am gonna buy the wii to http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif )
