Hi folks and happy spring! I've been looking to build a rig to handle some older games circa 1999-2006. I have two choices as far as processor/board combo. The other components would be the same.
The two choices are as follows:
1: Athlon XP 3200+ on MSI K7N2Platinum
2: 2x Athlon MP 2800+ on ASUS A7M266-D
The identical bits and pieces would be 2gb DDR, AGP x1650pro, 200gb SATA drive,, XP Pro ,etc.
In addition to gaming it would be nice to have a snappier overall experience. I think the duallie would help with that but I know the 3200+ has a higher clock speed and memory bus. Ideas welcome. Thanks!
