I may be able to get a 2400+ cheap soon as a mate of mine may be upgrading to a 2800+ or something. he whats to be able to play Hl2
What are the 2400+ ones like to overclock ? do they overclock well?
If I do get the 2400+ off him I would only be makeing a system to mess around with overclocking etc.
I am not sure if I should advise him to get anything else cpu wise though as he would be better to just buy a new 64 biter rig, but he's tight mony wise and would not spend that much, he will be wanting to be able to play doom 3 and HL2 most likely thinks at high quality settings to .
His pc is
mx 440 128mg
What should I tell him to do. up the ram to 512 and at least a ati 9600xt that should cope ok shouldn't it ?
with the newest bios that mobo he has can take up to a Sempron 3000+
how much of a difference would he see with it and the above upgrades? and maybe he might even spend a bit more and get 9800pro (maybe)
Any other suggestions ?? how would the 2400+ go with either a 9600xt or 9800pro ?? and 512mg ram and what do you think of that mobo he has?http://uk.asus.com/products/mb.../a7v...-x/overview.htm
