I have tight budget for upgrading my PC from Celeron 500Mhz where Half Life 2 spec recommend for 1Ghz and higher, consider:
Abit KV7 KT600 M/B
Corsair DDR 400 256MB
Icute 450w PSU with Dual Fan
While still using Voodoo 3 2000 card and *Audigy 2 ZS(this is where the driver affect the performance of my PC and related application)*
I seen there one on other forum webiste, could OC Sempron by setting the RAM to 200Mhz instead of the original 166Mhz, which he mention having successful OC to 2.0Ghz from 1.67Ghz, if it could work, will I need to replace the CPU FAN?
I appreaciate most of the game developer still optimize for older system when not playing multiplayer gaming...But hope Counter Strike : Source could run up to par as Althon XP
No doubt, I a First Person Shooter but consider Sim 2 is able to run Sempron2400+?
I could wait 2 more month to save my budget and get AMD64 PC too:
Is Abit KV8 Pro Socket 754 worth considering?
If so, I consider buying,
Abit KV8 PRO Socket 754
Corsair 256MB DDR 400Mhz
Total cost would only cost extra $300 over Sempron budget PC???
