The specs are XP 1900, Geforce4 Ti4200, 512mb PC2700, etc etc etc.
Anyway, his budget is pretty limited right now, and I configured the following upgrades for him..
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 939 socket
Leadtek 6600GT video card
1gb ddr400 memory
chaintech vnf4-ultra mb
My question is, will this computer be able to run most of the newer games out without problems? He's worried that the 200mhz increase won't do much and he will still have problems. I think he is wrong, but what do i know.
Also, how much of a performance increase will be seen with socket 939 over socket 754? For an extra 70 dollars, he can get a 754 64 3700+ cpu, and would probably be happier.
