I'm thinking about upgrading my current box. It's getting a bit pokey on a couple of games I currently play. The setup is as follows: A7N8X Deluxe Athlon XP 2200+ 1 stick 512MB PC2700 Ram Radeon 9600XT The processor and RAM were a gift when I built this box about a year ago and I'd like to upgrade them. Looking at a processor with a 400 Mhz bus. The Athlon XP 3000+ for $139 is the processor I think I want and I'd like a Gig of PC3200 in 2 - 512MB sticks. The prices on those range greatly. I can go as low as $160 for Corsair ram (I want quality sticks), but it can also go up to as high as $250. Is it worth buying the ultra-high-performance ram or is that more for overclockers? Cooling the new chip isn't an issue as I've got a nice setup. Please offer any opinions on the CPU and especially on the RAM choices. Thanks for your help. _John Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
