    Default what to buy :S

    ok my current rig is
    intel p4 530 @ 3.49GHz
    1gb of ddr2-800 dualchannel ocz memory @ 3-3-3-6 @ 677hz
    a 6800XT
    and a p5n-E sli
    the rest is nog important but i just saved up some money and i was woundering what would give me the biggest speed boost in games

    a intel C2D E6600
    2 GB of OCZ pc2-1066 sli memory
    a nvidia geforce 7900gs
    or a nvidia geforce 8600GT with 256mb and 128 bit (dispite beeing DX 10 which is a + the 8500 was about as fast as a 6600 and im looking for a increase in fps not a decrease : / )
    or a nvidia 7600GT with 256mb and 128 bit

    im gone take a stab in the dark and say the C2D but im not that shure seeing as a 3d card will also give me a huge boost

    The OCZ ram is great, but it is overrated. $140, are you kidding me? I bought some G.Skill stuff for $80 and it works great.

    I would personally go with an 8 series graphics card. If you can, get the 320mb version of the 8800.

    The 8800GTS 640mb is a beast. With a few minor tweaks, I achieved a score of 9838 on 3dmark06. Some of the other members can attest to the power of the 8800.

    yea but thats out of my budget atm >.< and de 8800's are verry cpu sensitive and i havent seen a single bench of a 8800 on a old P4 proccesor so it could be that it wont run as good as it should but think im just gone buy the 6600 with a cooler asus silent knight or asus artic square.. think im gone go with the silent knight : ) and then just overclock it i've seen beches of a E6600 against a intel p4 530 with the E6600 having 40-60fps more : )

    Oh, sorry. I thought you were doing the upgrade to C2D.
