First of all, I would like to thank everyone in this forum for their great tips and contributions to help others. I've been visiting this site alot to read about various stuff and decided to sign up today.
I currently have this Windows XP build to play old games:
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+
Motherboard: DFI LanParty UT nF4 SLI-DR
RAM: 4x 1GB Kingston DDR 400 Mhz
GPU: GTX 750 Ti (waiting for a GTX 285 to arrive since I had issues running few games with a 750 ti)
Soundcard: SoundBlaster Audigy 2 Zs
HDD: WD Blue 1TB 7200 RPM
OS: Windows XP 32-bit SP3
Been considering upgrading to an AMD FX-60 which uses the same socket or jump to one of these:
- 2008 Intel i7 965 Extreme
- 2009 Intel i7 975 Extreme
- 2010 Intel i7 980x Extreme
Though I dont know how well 4 and 6 cores CPUs perform with 1999 - 2010 era games (issues, artifacts, etc...)
Any tips about this or better hardware to go with?
