    hey guys

    i have an athlonxp 2100+ processor in my comp right now, with a geforce 3 gfx card, and 512mb of ram.

    It runs everything perfectly fine, but sometimes in newer games it gets a little choppy, so i was wondering if it would be better to upgrade my processor or if I should upgrade my graphics card.

    Here is the graphics card that I am thinking of upgrading to: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?type=product&id=1077627694702&skuId=6366559

    thanks

    personally i would go with a radeon, but that geforce3 is pretty old - i would do the card before the proc
