I have the following configuration: MB ABIT KT7 RAID CPU AMD Athlon 850 RAM - 768 SDRAM HDD - 35 7200 rpm Video - Inno3D GeForce 2 GTS 32 MB (runs in AGP 4X mode) Although I seem to have a nice configuration (not high-end, but...) recent games such as NOLF 2 or Battlefield 1942 run really slow (about 10-15 fps), not to mention Unreal 2: Awakening. Question is: which component holds me back, the videocard (which I suspect is the case), CPU, or motherboard? Or all of them at the same time? In other words, in order to make my machine fast enough to run new generation games (including the above mentioned, or even DOOM 3 et al.), which of the components should I replace? If so, what kind of upgrade would you recommend: if AMD, then what AMD: 1 Ggz, 2Ggz? If Nvidia, what Nvidia: GF 3, GF 4, with 64 MB, 128 MB? In other words, a balance between the power and the price. I'd appreciate straight-to-the-point comments or thoughts!
