Morning Ladies and gents, I have browsed the forums for a while and thought I'd use your expert knowledge. I am looking to build a new computer but have been out of touch with the latest info on Graphic cards and CPU's. I have built my last 3 computers and have built several others for friends and family. I use my computer mainly for games such as Battlefield 2 and Raven shield but would like to develop a system which will last me another couple of years. I can spend roughly £1000 but can go a little above if its justified. My current specs are: AMD Barton 3000 Leadtek Winfast Deluxe limited nforce 2 ultra 400 1.5gb Kingston PC2700 DDR Ram 40gb Western Digital IDE 160gb Western Digital IDE ATI Radeon 9800XT A few basic questions I hope you can answer: What are your views on the dual core CPU's for gaming? Are there any technologies regards to CPU's I should wait for? A not so easy question but what graphic card would you recommend buying, be it coming out in a couple of months or buying it now? Thanks in advance.
