Ok, I have 2 computers. And I want to decide which one is better for gaming, and which one I shoud convert into a server. Please help me decide which one is better....
In the blue corner Optiplex GX260. Windows 2000, P4 Northwood 2,26 Ghz, 133 FSB, 533 Bus Speed, with 256 MB Kingston PC3200 RAM running at 133 ( to match the CPU?) I could add another 256 totaling to 512.
In the red corner eMachines W2247, with an Athon XP Thoroughbred 2200+ (1788.5 Mhz) 133 FSBx2 768 RAM PC2100.
Clearly the Dell is better with an 845G Graphics card (using 64 MB)
My indecition comes that I want one as a server, the other as an extra server, doubling as extra gaming PC. I have 256 MB RAM (PC2100) and a GeForce2 Ti 64Mb. I wanted to see if I could run some benchmarkng test and have a general idea, but the systems are quite different, mainly since one runs W2K (Dell) and the other XP home (eMchines). How would you guys go ahead in the instalation?
