specs question

I currently have.. p4 2 ghz 512 ddr Also, I put my comp together myself and I notice that comps you buy from actual companies like HP or Compaq with the same specs run much more smoother, I was told by a friend that the reason mine isnt as smooth is because the parts are generic and dont work too well together as they should. do you guys think that these specs are suficiant in your opinons for HL2/CS:S? I currently have a GF4 MX 440 128 MB but I'm saving up for a x600 or 800

    E-bay or any factory outlet in your area, sell your old crappy comp. and get a new one cheap. Or just sell parts of your comp. and get new parts cheap.
    Just keepin' it fresh.

    I have a 2.0GHz OCed at 2.61. my MB is only 533MHz bus and I was wondering if i could get a 2.8GHz with 533Mhz bus and stick it in there. Or even a 3.0GHz. Any feedback?

    Posted by Anarchy>I'm not positive on the voucher. I should hope that it applies in Canada, considering ATi is based there.
    Nah I'm not worried about the voucher, I just hope the 9800XT will do good.

    Posted by Anarchy>You aren't going to notice much difference between 2000 and 2400, to be honest. Recommended specifications are for the best gameplay experience, many people confuse them as requirements. You will definately need to upgrade your graphics card, and while an x800 isn't absolutely necessary, it only costs $50 more than a 9800xt.
    I hope the 9800XT will do good, especially for HL2, because I'm planning on buying it soon if it is truely recomended. As for the voucher, is that only in the US ?

    There's always one factory outlet, or even more in each city. There you'll find lot's of cheap things, including the XT.

    Yea maybe I should take out my mobo and vid card and replace those 2, + another strip of 512 and ill be set.. anyone know how much a good mobo goes for? Cause the crappy ECS mobo I have now only supports 4X AGP and that could be a problem if I gets me a x800 ** I just got Doom 3 too today and now I know what im getting myself into with my shit card .. Doom 3 even says GF4 MX are good enough for the game but not mine :S .. even on the lowests settings it was choppy and with HL2 the specs are higher so I g2 upgrade fast..

    And to think with all the money these ass holes are making, you'd think they'll lower the prices down, way down, especially for the hardware part, but instead they just anal rape you till every single dollar you have is gone.

    u may wan to get 1gig of ram, and an x600 or x800 would be more than enough. u may also want at least 2.4GHz cpu
