We got 3 and 4 ghz machines out now these days and some of the most intricate video games can still run on a 1 ghz still with no problems. Trick is to get graphics and sound cards that are cabaple of doing their own processing on the card to relieve some of the pressure on the CPU. I'd love to have a real highend computer....but the finances don't support it, but you wouldn't have to upgrade for quite a few years.
yea.. if only i had a few more dollars....
i agree. I used to game a ton but now that im old and married i don't have any time for that mumbo jumbo--- thus my athlon xp 1900+ will prolly last until it won't do my video editing anymore
