Default Let's talk current upgrade

Intel System:

S478 Northy with nice OCing beats S775?

AMD

S462 with 512k Cache with nice OCing close to A64 ??

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

If you already have either one of the above; let's say -

Intel Northy C at over 3.4 Ghz
AMD series AXP at over 2.6 Ghz
Good to excellent Vcard
Good to excellent memory
SATA drives setup

Does it make sense to go into the current greatest?????

Your comments please

only upgrade when you NEED to, when you can no longer play the latest games at MEDIUM settings, you should consider eliminating the most restrictive bottle neck of the system, if you already have the latest vidcard, then go with a CPU upgrade, and the other way around if you have a speedy cpu/mobo but a slower vidcard.

as far as I can see, only GAMES require you to have the latest gear to enjoy them at the HIGHEST details.

if you upgrade your PC when it is really NEEDED, you will have saved quite a bit of money.

I'm currently still using the PC I bought in September 2002. An Abit TH7-II, at the time I had a P4 1.6@2.4 which has been replaced with a 2.26@2.5.. at no great cost as the 1.6A was quite popular then and I got good money for it.

The vidcard (Ti4600) has since been replaced by a R9700Pro and I am still able to play all the games out NOW at medium-high quality settings at 1024x768 and 1280x1024.

I only lack in the memory department, unfortunately it is a waste of money to buy new RDRAM now, so I'm waiting for Piotke to finish toying around with my A64 setup so I can start to move to that system with 1gb of DDR ram
