Getting Some Parts for My Aging PC PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 19 March 2007

GeForce 6800 XTI’m seriously thinking of getting parts for my current PC. My current one can do basic stuff but when playing games it kinda sucks. I’m currently using:

AMD Athlon 1.8 GHz
512 MB SD PC133 RAM
15 inch tube monitor
Sound Blaster
32MB GeForce 2 and 128MB GeForce 4 Ti


I can play normal basic games – those that don’t demand much out of your PC. I’m thinking of investing some money in the graphics card. 1.8 GHz will still be able to manage some games. I’m thinking of buying a 128MB GeForce 6800 XT (extreme edition, shown on picture). Though nothing fantastic, it beats the GeForce 2 graphics card more or less. If I’m not mistaken, the 6800 XT can handle 2.4 billion pixels per second – that’s pretty reasonable. Not top of the line it only costs around $60 for a new card. I’m not going for heavy graphics like a GeForce 8800 GT coupled together using SLI that is capable of churning out 20 to 30 billion pixels per second. That’s a pretty high end graphics card and it will blow my pocket for 2 years!

Here’s what I want to do in sequence:


1. 128MB GeForce 6800 XT - $60
2. 2X 512MB (1GB) SD PC133 RAM - $55x2 = $110
3. 17 inch LCD Samsung monitor - $150
4. I might need a larger power supply, at least 400-500 watt - $30
(just in case for the graphics card as it has high to huge power consumption)

Total: $350

I would definitely need the basic 6800 XT graphics card for more recent games. Mine doesn’t really bring out the realism and the look and feel of the game. I’d Samsung 17 inchget a 17 inch LCD monitor as I’m using a 15 inch tube – it’s frying my eyes everyday with radiation. 1GB of RAM would ensure that this system would last for at least 2-3 years. And as for the power supply, graphics card nowadays do really consume very high power. I’ve fried 2 power supply unit in the past because of the GeForce 4 Ti and that’s just technology of the past, what about newer graphics card?

Anyone wanna chip in to my funds? :D Help me get some parts! At least $60! Thanks!
