    I been looking for something to upgrade on my rig, but my budget is limited. I'm a heavy gamer but since my last mobo (DFI Infinity nF4X) and my X1800GTO died, I'm no longer a gamer and be looking an upgrade so I can get back in the game. Should I upgrade my gfx card to either 7900GTO or x1950xt or should I buy new CPU + mobo first? I game at 1280x1204 resolution

    I would go with a new graphics card. Something from ATI, if it were me.

    i'd get gfx card, personally
    next thing should save up a while and get new mobo, cpu, and ram at the same time


    and it has to have had a pci-e cuz it ran an x1800gto

    The X1950Pro can be faster than the GT sometimes, but the X1950XT will kick it in its balls and crush that 7900:nutkick:
