Also, since the performance of the graphics card is limited by the front side bus on my motherboard, do I really need to spend the money for faster memory on the graphics card?
I am about to purchase:
2 GB RAM (2 x 1GB DDR 400 PC3200)
New power supply (Currently 250W with +12 rail @ 14V)
Extra cooling fan(s)
New graphics card (Trying to make the decision as to what I can afford! My son is a gamer on World of Warcraft. If I buy the system he really wants, I'll need a third mortgage!!!)
My system is:
HP Pavillion a620n
AMD Athlon XP 3200+ 2.20 GHz:
Advanced 400 MHz front side bus
ASUS name: A7V8Z-LA
HP/Compaq name: Kelut-GL6E
1 GB (1 PC2700 @512 MB & 1 PC3200 @ 512 MB)
184 pin, DDR1-333 SDRAM
160 GB Ultra DMA
