    GFX Cards

    Basically I've got money (limited amount) burning a hole in my pocket, and i was considering buying a new GFX card, however, is it really worth it, or should i put it towards a new 64bit PC?

    Currently

    Athlon 3200+ stock
    Thermalright SI-97
    NF7-S v2
    1.5gb RAM DDR-400
    80Gb SATA HDD
    DVD-RW
    CD-RW
    ATI Radeon 9600xt.


    Thanks, Dave

    Does that board support only agp?

    If it does u may want to upgrade the system, maybe use ASRocks dual board so you could keep the agp graphics card for a while and use it to buy a faster cpu and ram. Or just get a board and go for something like atis gto2 card and overclock it like hell.

    Depends on budget at the end of the day

    I wouldn't spend too much on that rig, unless you are particularly hurting with what you have. Save it :>
