Hey all! I've been really on the fence about upgrading my video card. With my system specs, I'm just not sure if I want to just upgrade my video card, and pray for a better gaming experience that is worth just the upgrade, or if I should just wait and build a new system (probably on the AM2 archetecture).
My system is as follows.
Processor: AMD XP 2400 (Stock Cooler, Socket A)
Mobo: Soyo KT-600 Dragon Plus
Video Card: XFX Gefore FX5200 (256MB GDDR)
RAM: 1GB (512MBx2) PC-3200
Sound Card: Onboard
Optical Drives: Lite-On 16x/48xDVDRW
Hard Drives: Western Digital 120GB 7200RPM IDE
Maxtor 80GB 7200RPM Ultra ATA-IDE/133 Drive
If I upgrade, I would still be looking to rebuild about six months down the line, but I'd reaaaally like to play
Oblivion without using the Old-Blivion mod. I'd be looking at spending about $150 (I'm flexible) depending on whether or not its worth it. Played Oblivion on my sisters laptop, and that was on medium...I'd be happy with medium.
I'd REALLY appreciate any advice given.
