Is the ATI Radeon X800 XT worth £160 ($292.45, €237.15) more than the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro? And how much of a noticable improvement in performance will the AMD Athlon 64 3400+ have over the AMD Athlon 64 3200+?
There is definately a noticable performance difference in the video cards. That a big difference in price also but yes, the performance is noticable. AMD Athlon 64 3400+ is absolutely identical to Athlon 64 3200+ with that only difference that it works at 200MHz higher core clock frequency, which is now equal to 2.2GHz. Besides that, there are no other differences.
