Question about Asrock K7VT2 Motherboard
I curently play MOHAA and COD2, both online. I have the following system with a 320gb harddrive
Mainboard : Asrock K7VT2
Chipset : VIA KT266/333
Processor : AMD Athlon XP @ 1666 MHz
Physical Memory : 1536 MB
Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.01.2600 Service Pack 3
DirectX : Version 9.0c (July 2007)
I would like to play later versions of COD and MOHAA. I have a limited budget, and don't have the time or patience :-) to build a new system from the ground up.
My questions are;
1. What is the best value for money Graphics card I can upgrade to? I hear that sticking with NVIDIA is a good idea. Also any new Graphics card has to be AGP 4x/2x 3.3v etc.
2. Is there also a suitable processor upgrade you would recommend
Thank you in advance for your help
Unfortunatly your still running low end CPU power and low end agp graphics. Your going to pay 150-200 just for a fair PCIe/AGP HD/3D VC. If $200 doesnt hurt (and this is the lowest price best option), then might I suggest Mobo/CPU/RAM for around $200 that would do the trick and allow for future upgrades. You might also need a power supply. I just built one less than 3 weeks ago for a friend and it fairs against my own gaming comp.
AMD ATHLON 64 X2 DCP 6000+ 3.01GHz
XFX 8800GT AD 512MB
Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2 MB $90+/-
AMD Athlon™ II X2 250 BOX 3.0GHz (CAME W/FAN)$70+/-
AND 4GB OF DDR3 1066 RAM COMPATIBLE WITH MOBO $40+/-
THE ONBOARD VIDEO IS CAPABLE OF USING 700MB
OF RAM...RGB/DVI OUT.
HOPE THIS HELPS.

You'll be hard pressed to find a motherboard out today with AGP it's all PCI-E graphics now....
There are some really nice Asus and NVidia motherboards out with integrated graphics for less than $100 that will plug right into your existing case and possibly Power Supply.
Nice CPU Intel runs around 89 to 129 - 6400 dual or 8200 quad and 4 Gig of Ram will run about 80.
....I have some AWESOME AGP adaptors which are useless

My advice is go buy a 680i mobo, I use XFX and very reliable. Have two. Has SLI 16x 16x pci-e. Get two Nvidia 8800GT's or GTX's and 4GB ram, preferably two 2GB sticks. All of this is affordable and can handle all games very well. As far a processor I recommend Intel Q6600 quadcore. Works very good stock and can be overclocked very easily with the XFX 680i mobo. Beyond that I'd recommend Antec for psu/power no less than 6-800watt and also Antec for case.
