Hey, I just got my computer upgraded. Old Specs: AMD Duron 750mghz Processor Old crappy motherboard Ge-Force 2 MX/MX 400 64MB ram Now Specs: AMD Athlon XP 2200+ Processor New gaming motherboard Ge-Force 2 MX/MX 400 256megs of ram This month I'm getting a 512meg chipset of ram and a new video-card. I'm wanting to get the Ge-Force 5600 256meg chip, or the Ge-Force 5900. What should I upgrade and what do you recommend with my computer? Please note, I just upgraded my computer 2 weeks ago, so this new stuff I got is pretty good, but I still wanna get a better processor though.

hey Soldier, i HIGHLY recommend the XP 2500+ BARTON .. cause its CHEAP, and has the full 640k Cache ... regualr athlon xp's only have 384k..... that extra cache makes a tremendous difference, in fact im buying an XP 2500/2600 BARTON this week. and DO NOT BUY FX5600... the difference from FX 5600 to FX 5900 is MASSIVE, the FX5900 is way more powerful than the 5600... so spend your money wisely on the FX5900.
