thanks everyone. I actually am taking my ugrades process a little more seriously now because I have to hold off on my Macbook Pro 17" until the summer/fall (its hard to get student loans big enough for both tuition and a laptop). So I'm gonna use money I have in hand to upgrade my tower so I have more computing power in my dorm as I don't really need to do as much intense work on the run as I would at my desk. so heres the plan: CPU http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Newer%20Technology/MAXG48S1800/ $ 359.99
this is all for a QS tower that I got for 50$ I plan to keep this computer for a very very very long time seeiing as when I finally do get my Macbook Pro in the fall, I will need a Mac OS 9 capable machine for working with Forge and running old school software/games that have yet to be ported to OS X.
what is your input?
also How do you think Doom 3 would run on this rig? (My video card is an ATI Raedeon 9200 Pro 128MB and I have 1.25 gigs of RAM)
