16. Re: Peformance Inquiry Aug 1, 2004, 19:34 tron

i'm in the same boat as you - 1.9ghz cpu with 512 ram and a fx 5600 ultra. i'm going to get D3 at best buy because they have a deal where if you buy D3 with Kingston RAM (decent stuff from the reviews i've read) you get a $20 gift card. they have a 512MB stick of PC2700 for $100, with a $35 rebate (mail-in though, dammit) it costs $65.

i know the extra RAM will help, but not an amazing amount. i wondered about the vid card too... is it worth getting the next-gen FX's and ATI's with such a slow processor? i dunno...
