Hey,
I am looking into getting a new PC around Christmas time, but am on a pretty tight budget. I mostly play game's like LFS, rFactor, netKar-Pro and Race. But i will probably end up getting Race 07 and newer game's soon, so i need a PC that could play these on High(ish) Settings.

Idea 1: http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/4512/odearpcwu1.jpg

Idea 2: http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/8766/newpc3ct5.jpg - This save's me money, without to much performance loss i think?

For the 2nd Idea, i could get this for an extra £15 http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/126832 Would it be worth it as it has 512mb?

My Current Spec's are:

Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHZ HT
Asus P4S800
ATI Radeon 9600 256mb AGP 8X
1GB DDR Memory
80GB Samsung HD IDE
40GB Western Digital IDE
Onboard Sound
DVD Drive
Sony CD-RW Drive
Window's XP Pro OEM

So i should see a major diffrence?!?

Cheers,
Mclarenmatt

Edit:// I am correct in thinking that the Dual Core is 2.20GHZ each core? So in total i would have 4.40GHZ?

Probably i talk about this :wink:
Yes in dual each core is 2.20 Ghz but in total is not 4.40 Ghz bcoz its shares some part of hardware with other (kind of compromise for voltage usage,space and price reduction).
Sometimes old application design for single core (single thread) work faster on single core processor than dual core based processor.
But if application is design to use dual core (double thread) then it can work faster than single core.
Majority of games release in 2006 are develop for single core.
