Hello! I am new here! I started reading digit some 3 months ago... The reason I am here is that i am desparately in need of a new PC! My old one's (5 yrs old P IV 2.0 GHZ) AGP slot has gone kaput! I will shortlist my requirements *Since only my CPU is gone (only the AGP slot) I won't need monitor, keyboard, mouse, speaker or UPS! *My past PC was also intel, so I am looking at buying a Dual Core one! Also, what's this I hear about AMD AM2 is better than Intel? And cheaper?? Is is worthwile to use AMD AM2 or AMD processors? *I am a die hard gamer & this is what my new PC must be based on! I want to play latest games @ 1024*768 res on medium - high graphics settings. ALSO, I mod almost every game I finish playing, so the PC must be able to handle all the extra workload! *I have a kingston 512MB DDR Ram. Should I use this on the new PC or is it worthwile to upgrade to a 1 GB DDR2? *The PC must be future proof, Say... for about 2-3 years *What brand of mother board should I buy? *My old PC was running on an MSI Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 256MB DDR graphic card. Should i opt for a new one? I heard that i could get GeForce 7600.. something card for Rs.7599/- *What about ATI? Are their cards better than Nvidia? *I have a 120GB HDD. Should I go for the new SATA versions? *Please tell me all the prices of the items (if possible) *Finally.. I am willing to strech my budget if it is worth it! THANK YOU GUYS!
