Thanks Adam :_)

Ya Sure, I'll post benchmarks, but I think my Processor will be a HUGE bottleneck.

Soon, I think I will get X2 5000+ Black Edition with a decent board and will overclock it to 3.0GHz. DDR II are so cheap now a days I just looked into newegg.

Your processor might be somewhat of a bottleneck, but I'm sure you'll still see a nice improvement in gaming performance. You could overclocking it a bit more. I got my brother's 3000+ up to 2.4Ghz (without trying) and it performs very well in games with a X1800XT 512MB. Still gives the latest systems a run for their money.

Hmm, I do have 3500+ too, but its Winchester hence SSE II only. But I'll try again, last time I tried to overclock it to 2.60GHz, it was not stable in 3D Mark 05 / 06, but I think it was happening due to X1950Pro I guess. I'll install it again with HD 3870 this time and try to overclock to see how it goes. If everything goes fine, then I guess i'm ready to go for another year maybe :D

Nice score, Supreet. I think it'll perform better than you expect. Multicore support is pretty overrated in most games - the video card is still Kings**t!

Hey thanks G.G. :)

Brandon, I haven't installed it yet-- Most probably tomorrow :)

B.B, its definitely very slow processor now. I'm still confused between Intel 6750 or AMD 5000+ BE. AMD processor is cheaper and will overclock to 3.0GHz with ease, and motherboard will be cheap as well. Intel 6750 has more raw power, but it is expensive and Soc 775 boards are expensive here too :/

FWIW, I have been very happy with the performance of my 8800GT with a S939 X2 3800+ at 2.4GHz. Sure I'd love to have a faster CPU, but I just don't think its a very good investment right now. Even Crysis plays just fine on the ole A64...

Once again, I might get another RED! Unfortunately I don't have HD 3870 with me anymore, I'm using ATI X1600 Pro these days.

I might get ATI HD 5870 next month :_)

He's just jelalous that your new card might be whoopin his own :P

Hey Supreet that HWA shirt looks good, I forgot we had a store available lol!

Is your shirt the normal or the value version? Cause to me the value one looks so comfy, but is so cheap I hope the logo doesn't wash off

No, I did not purchase it through HWA store, actually there was a guy called Rex Langdon "http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/visitor/50745/" and he was running T-shirt business, he sent these T-Shirts to few HWA members.
