 AMD CPU Launch Schedule
AMD is planning to launch B3 stepping quad-core Phenom 9050 series CPUs including 9850, 9750, 9650, 9550 and 9150 within the next 1-2 weeks, however the top-end 9850 will only reach a core frequency of 2.5GHz, instead of the original goal of 2.6Ghz. The company expects to be able to deliver higher core frequencies in the third quarter this year, according to sources at motherboard makers.

AMD will later launch triple-core Phenom 8750, 8650 and 8450 CPUs with power consumption of 65W in late April. Prior to that, the company will launch the Athlon 64 X2 5800+ to fill the gap in the mainstream market, noted the sources.

For the dual-core CPU market, AMD will launch the Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Black Edition and 4600+ by the end of March and will follow with Phenom-based Athlon 6250 and 6050 CPUs by the end of the second quarter. The company has also informed customers that final orders for Athlon 64 X2 6400+, 6000+ and 5600+ (89W versions) will be taken at the end of March, the sources added.

How do I check my system specs?
Sorry, I've never delved that far into computers lol.
Thanks again!

Find a program called aida32, then you can run a report on your system, just attach the text/html file and we can decode it for you :)

Ed: Check the file before you upload it, as it can detect your windows/office install keys.

OK You have the following.

AMD XP3200+ (Stock)
Mosel 512MB DDR3200
Asus A7N8X Motherboard
nVidia 5700LE (256mb)

Depending on what MMO you play a 8600GT/HD3850 should be more than enough power. Something else to look at upgrading is your system RAM. Most people advise at least 2GB nowa days, but as it is DDR3200 it is getting harder to find.

How much money do you have to spend? putting an 8800 in that system will require extra power, and tbh i doubt his PSU will be able to hack it

my friend has a similar set-up to you, except he has a 6800Gt. Is your board AGP or PCI-E?

If you have plenty of money im sure a whole new system wouldnt go a miss :P haha.

After a quick google, i find that its an APG x4/x8 board.

This is what advise you get.

does that card require a 6-pin PSU power cable??

16-03-2008, 14:05:25

This is all new to me, so I'm just listening and following directions :p
No idea what a 6-pin power core is or if my board is a AGP or PCI-E.
So glad I found this forum! :D:worship:

Thanks again

:P.. haha dont worry, Erm right we have established that your board is AGP so that limits your card choice but, if your only interested in MMO's then that'll be fine, take a look at the 3850 above. And you MAY need to look into getting a beefier power supply. If you have the money then get the RAM but if you dont then dont worry about it.

What kind of budget are you looking at?

16-03-2008, 16:03:46

Budgets going to be around $300..

And yes MMO's are really all I play, I just want to be able to run through a town lag free :(

16-03-2008, 16:22:21

Most of the lag is server side. :)
