There is a chance you might perform same as standard clock E1600,but that CPU is a entry level to duo core.
You are probably looking close or do better than the sempron 140 with your CPU, remember the E1600 is a duo core@ 2.2GHZ,and since theirs 2 cores it be running at 4.4GHZ in total.
If you can push your budget to 350 euro i would grab AM2+ motherboard+ AMD Athlon II X3 425,2GB ram 667,ATI Radeon HD 5770 and a corsair 550W, you will notice a huge improvement if you go with that instead of just getting 5850+ a psu
LOL be at peace, i'm not pulling anything of sorts xD I Want to get rid of my pentium --' xD and I want to use a card that requires 2 power connectors
Yes, but mine is a "dual-core" of sorts (come on, dream) too :P 3.8 x 2 makes almost 8Ghz of netburst wonder xD
LOL ara you kidding? I wish xD here's the pricing:
Phenom 2 X2 550 - 100€
gigabyte ga-ma-790xt-ud4p - 100€
2x2Gb gskill trident 2000 - 100€
power supply (one of the above) - 100€
5850 - 230€
Total desired rig cost: 630€
I could spend less on the PSU, but I think I want to have the ability to go to CF if I ever see fit to :x
I don't want to buy a 50€ mobo and a 50€ processor :x and the prices in Europe are, unfortunately, Very over the edge.
Make no mistake, those Are good advices. But if I'll spend money, I want more than just the "mainstream"
If we have to dream, dream high, right?
