a 2.4 and a 2.6 GHz P4 processor? I know that it's 200MHz, but speed wise is there really that much difference?
only 200Mhz ... but everything will help in a game like HL2
if you got a choice, go for the 2.8. i think there is a fair bit of difference, but im not sure.
its a bit pricey
it is? but their both good cpu's
the lowest ive seen the 2.8 is for $260
thats in US right? mmmm so its about uhhhh bout $550 Australia.. dam thats very expensive!
go for an amd 2600+ it's the best value for money card on the market, and will set you back less than a hundread £
I'm updating my old comp from 1.6GHz to 2.4, that was the reason behind me asking.
The new one I'm building is going to be an AMD 2800+ with a Gigabyte GA-7NNXP, NVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400 MoBo. My case I'm buying has 7 fans, so it should keep everything nice and cool.
Upgraded my own PC from an AMD 1333 Mhz to a new 2800+ Mhz AMD XP and I can tell you it's surely worth the investment.
I'd have to agree with the people before me that the AMD XP 2600+ or 2800+ is the best buy, for me it was the AMD XP 2800+ in any way.
