I want to change my current CPU with an AMD Duron 1300 Mhz and the Video Card with a GeForce 4 Ti 4200 with 128 Mb - 128 Bit ...
My problem is ... which is better : the FX 5200 64 Mb DDR 64 Bit ( AGP 4x ) or the GeForce 4 Ti 4200 with 128 Mb DDR 128 Bit ( AGP 4x ) for games, movies, and video apps ???
Which of them will run Warcraft 3 TFT, Red Alert 2 YR, Worms 4 Mayhem, C&C Generals ZH, Counter-Strike 1.6, Half Life 2, Doom 3, Hellforces better ? ? ?
Also ... instead of changing my CPU with an AMD Duron 1300 Mhz I have the possibility of changing the whole motherboard with an Intel one ( that supports the same SDR ram and AGP 4x ) ... with a Intel Pentium III CPU that runs at 800 Mhz ...
Which of them ( AMD Duron 1300 mhz or Intel PIII 800 Mhz ) will run games, apps, windows xp sp2 better ? ? ?
many thanks to those who reply
