Angry the Clown Posted February 21, 2004 Report Share Posted February 21, 2004 RIGHT, I am just about ready to order all the bits for my new PC. This comprises of a Cooler Master case, Asus mother board, 1gb of Corsair Ram, a 120gb Samsung hard disc plus an additional 80gb Samsung hard disc for media storage, a Sony DVD drive and my existing Sony CD Writer, 430w Antec PSU aaaaaaand a 3ghz Pentinum 4. I'll reuse my current sound card in my Dell for a while. NOW, the final choice I've got is regarding the graphics card. The Sapphire 9600xt is ?121, whilst the Sapphire 9800 Pro (just the Pro, not the All in Wonder) is ?164, so that's ?43 difference. What, dear friends, should I go for, given that I am making this PC to be as future proof as I can, though understand that I mean future proofing a PC as far as I see my personal demands being over the next four+ years. The answer perhaps seems obvious, but I do wonder if the 9800 is overkill for me. The new PC will actually be great incentive to enjoy PC gaming a lot more than I have allowed myself to in the past and I am GREATLY looking forward to the likes of Rome Total War and Battle for Middle Earth this summer. I like to save money where possible, but I have to ask if the ?43 (actually ?35 since I can claim back the tax in writing all the components off as a business purchase) is genuinely an insignificant amount extra to pay for the quality I am going to get form the card.
