Hi Guys,

My current PC seriously needs updating, its not bad with older games but obviously its struggling with the new stuff.
The spec is
XP1800, 512mb PC2700 DDR,Siluro FX5200DT (128mb),A350ATX PSU

Would something like a 3000+ 64bit,Asus deluxe motherboard, Radeon 9800Pro be ok to run the latest stuff

Any advice much appreciated :)
BTW nice site

If you already know what to buy... the only advice I can give is that you'd better gather lots of cash ;)

Oh, in fact I have another one: If you plan to buy a 9800 pro, stay AWAY from the 128 bit version, even if it has 256mb of VRAM. The 128 bit bus is a big choke point...
All FX cards suck with DX9 games, 9800 pro/XT is the best you can get without paying 500$ ... and it runs very smooth if your CPU doesn't slow it down.
Kaneda... I doubt multiplayer FPS are as fun on consoles than they're on PCs. Only Goldeneye and Perfect Dark were really good
"don't know why though."

Mouse+keyboard > Gamepad
Also, you can't map custom maps or mod for console games :p
