    Well once you've done the upgrade, that Celeron will be the only weak point left. Since you will now have very fast Ram, you can always try to squeeze a little extra performance by overclocking the CPU. It might not go very far if it is 0.18 part, but I still think you could reach 2.0GHz without too much hassle.

    You thought I'd leave you alone eh? WELL YOU WERE WRONG! :D
    But this is my final consultation concerning the graphics card though.

    MSI FX5900XT-VTD128
    or
    MSI AGP RADEON RX9800PRO-TD128SP 128M

    They are exactly the same price, what am I going for?

    Thank you again

    RX9800pro without hesitation.

    There are pretty much only three things that matter in gaming, FBS speed, your video card and the fastest RAM you can handle. Processors are a bit overrated; focus on the above and you should be good to go.

    I'm Back!

    Hey!! I'm back :)

    I went around looking for that MSI Radeon RX9800Pro 128MB 256bit (265$) but everyone told me they weren't selling it anymore for it was discontinuous.

    Instead some guy proposed me a MSI Geforce FX5900 XT-VTD128, 289$.
    Any comments on how that card would perform compared to the first one? Also, I'm not sure if it's 256bit or not..

    Thanks for your feedback guys, (once again :D)
    It is very appreciated,
    Gab.

    Edit: I just realised I asked the same question before.. and Didou said Radeon9800Pro "without hesitation".. Why's that? Is there really a big difference? If so, what is it?

    Also, is there a difference between the Sapphire ATI Ultimate Radeon 9800Pro 128MB DDR CRT/DVI w/S Video output and the MSI AGP RX9800PRO-TD128 Radeon 9800PRO 128M DVI TV-OUT?

    I know that's like 4 questions, but I know you guys can handle it :D.
    Hehe, ty again.

    D3D performance is probably going to be better on the ATI while Opengl will be faster on the nVidia card. Seeing how most games are done in D3D these days, you'll probably get better gaming performance with the ATI card. Both of those cards came out at around the same time but I think the 9800pro card always trampled over the 5900.

    :mad: make Sure that your computer has an agp slot. Then get a graphics card. I made the mistake on my son's computer, I purchased a agp card, and there was no slot for it on the "Gateway" motherboard. He is a Warcraft freak. Loves the game.:mad:

    I thought that if your motherboard didn't supper PCIe, it necessarely supported AGP? It's not the case? (you guys are getting me scared here.., I just bought the 6600GT AGP)
