Hi all

Im buying some new kit as this one I have is getting a bit old now.
Can you tell me if its any good and how much better it will be?

Current rig:
AMD Athlon XP 2400+
1.5GB DDR PC-2700 (2 x 512MB, 2 x 256MB)
NVidia Gefore 6600LE (256MB)
ABIT AT7-MAX2 Mobo

New rig (will be):
AMD 64 X2 3800+
1GB DDR2 PC-4300 (1 stick of 1GB)
Sapphire Technology Sapphire RADEON X1600 XT Ultimate (256MB GDDR3)
MSI AM2 ATI Xpress 3200 ATX Mobo

I cant spend any more money really (together with case it comes to £307 without the memory), so it is a good spec?

Cheers
Craig

it's ok i guess - personally i would stick with what you have and save some more money and upgrade when you have about £500/£600 as this will be much more worth while then

Hi

The spec is decent, however I would suggest upgrading the x1600xt to an nVidia 7600GS or GT. But maybe this is out of your price range.
