Re: Is it worth the money? (TI4200 vs. FX5200)
A 266 fsb Athlon derived processor @ 1.3 ghz isn't really that bad of a thing provided you saddle it with more memory. Your rig will love the ti4200... expect 10k in 3dmark 20001, and good playability of ut2k3 @ 10x7, no aa/af.
From late 2k2 to spring 2k3 my specs matched yours pretty much, and I enjoyed Battlefield 1942, UT GOTY, Ghost Recon, Serious Sam: Second Encounter and Max Payne just fine...
At LEAST find a 128mb stick somewhere.... just 256 does not cut it anymore... and your rig won't really OC, will it...
