    I don't recall talking about the internet, servers or anything like that in this thread.

    I think he's got a P4c class CPU, which is quite competitve even with the latest P4s. Compared to an AMD system its another story.

    I think it's overpriced. It's my opinion. However, this guys seem to agree with me:

    COMPRES!

    I find your remarks extremely offensive, and you obviously don't know much about this card! I did do research on it! I never give advice without looking it up! Here is an article that smashes your stuff.

    http://www.tomshardware.com/2006/02/13/nvidias_geforce_7800gs_becomes_a_better_buy/

    I trust toms hardware, and they clearly show that it's the best AGP card.

    However, that aside.

    I definatly agree with switching to PCIe. The 7800GT is a great card, and should run fine. I however do not advise using refurbished hardware. I had a refurbished IBM laptop once. The thing was nothing but trouble! I had to send it back twice, for repairs. It's worth the extra money to get a new card. Trust me!

    Ops spartan, yes I was too offensive, sorry. The one who was just atacking me was s3xynanigoat, not you, lol.

    Either way, I think the 7800 GS is overpriced. I'm not going to argue about that again, if you want you can visit the link I provided before for some clues.

    That's fine. And yeah, I checked the link. I still think $300 is a really good deal though, however since he's switching to PCIe, it doesn't matter anymore. I highly do recomend the 7800GT though.

    I'm pretty sure there arn't any PCIe and socket 478 Mobos. Sorry. You will have to get a new processor. Or, just live with the old one for longer. Good Luck!

    Link doesn't work.

    Was more trying to state the role of ALL hardware in FPS/Lag

    So you disagree or agree that RAID 0 would make a difference in a Socket 478?



    Maximum PC tells a different story in the Feb. issue.

    NO, one is 775 and yours is 478.

    That link DOES work.

    It will help, just not enough to justify the investment IMO.
    All other reviews I've seen agree with the results from Anand Tech. I am not going to find every single review for you.

    Well, as I always say, it's just my opinion. However, from your own supplied link:

    The link you have provided on RAID 0 deals with off line gaming... The results somewhat bypass what online gamers may be interested in as most multiplayer games out there require intensive HD R/w'ing. However I did ask you to show me a link and you have done this, even if the test's weren't what I was looking for, at no fault of your own since I did not clarify.

    I would like to point out to you though that those tests are scored by a computer tech with a stop watch. This may be normal but I still laugh everytime I see it.

    Now compres, I offer you the opportunity to read and learn.

    Raid 0 is very debatable on it'sbenefits. I personally feel that i have seen great increases with it. Others disagree with it's benefits which is fine. I could throw 12 links recommending RAID 0 for performance, at the same time I could throw 13 links that don't recommend it. THis does not mean that either are right. Please do not feel like I am "attacking" you, Compres. It's just the nature of arguing a point.

    Question: A + B is equal to X, If A is 14 and X is 9 , what is B?

    Answer:
    Not trying to burst your bubble there compres.
