It all started about 1 year ago, i was a complete n00b about computers and i got a socket 478 board with AGP...simply because i wasnt aware of the fact if i just save my money i could get a better pc with PCI express and faster bus speed etc....
so i upgraded the crap outta the one i have its pretty much the best performance you can get out of an AGP 478 system
but i still get relatively poor performance on BF2 with a x800xt and 1.5GB RAM, a WD SATA HD (only 7200 RPM yes i realize not the best but im poor), 3.0GHZ processor...running on high settings, no AA 1024 X 768
my friend just got an x1800xt and he says he comp suddenly rules.....and im an ATI fanboy so nvidia is out of the question. Im gonna get a new CPU and motherboard and just use all my old components untill i can save for a new WD raptor, and Vid card.
so i was wanting (preferrably an unbiased one) opinion on which mobo, CPU and Vid card to get.
im interested in crossfire and the whole checkerboard style gpu splitting.....so i chose the ASUS crossfire board
I think its the best based on the fact that so many ppl complained about the DFI Lanparty one so i figured
which one more bang for the buck obviously the xt looks better on paper...but what does it all mean......i basically want to run BF2 max with 0 lag
can it be done with the xl, or do i need the XT.....
any help would be appreciated,
