85. doom 3 sys req's Jul 19, 2004, 16:30 tron
looking for some opinions in regards to possible upgrades for doom3.

currently i have:
1.9ghz P4, 400mhz fsb - upgradable to 2.2ghz P4 400mhz fsb max.

512MB PC2700 ram - upgrable to 3GB PC2700 RAM max

GeForceFX 5600 Ultra 128MB video (the good/fast one)

i'm wondering what if anything i should upgrade to play D3 the best i can. i keep hearing that it's more CPU/RAM intensive than vid card intensive. would it be worth shelling out $100 to upgrade to a 2.2 CPU? or jacking my RAM up to 1GB? or with my current config, is the best bet to upgrade to a DX9 video card? or, maybe any of these gains will be so small that i'm best off just leaving it as it, as the cost will not be proportional to the performance gain?

i know there is no way to know for sure... i'm just looking for opinions!

thanks in advance...
