I get about 3700 mark in 3D Mark 2003. I am considering buying a PC that

has
an AMD 64 3000+ chip in it - will I notice a major performance jump?

Remember that the HalfLife2 makers are saying that what matters is the
videocard. A 6800GT or X800XT would be smarter purchases.

Naw, that is overkill. You can get a mobo & 3200+ 64bit AMD chip for 2 to 3
hundred dollars less than the cost of either of those. I have a benchmark
of 14,566 with my 3200+ AMD chip + ATI 9600XT card.

Not unless you switch to Linux! ;-)

Actually, he'll notice a big performance drop if he goes to Linux. ATI's
Linux drivers are absolutely hopeless. Instant lockups on my SMP system,
memory leaks and terrible performance (9800SE runs UT only marginally faster
than a GF2MX) on my uniprocessor system, and they don't have any 64-bit
drivers. So, yeah, ATI + 32-bit Linux = bad, ATI + 64-bit Linux = no go

Without arguing the point, aside from gaming problems on your system... what
he will gain is system performance like he's never, ever imagined. A 64 bit
linux desktop, is a real performer bar none. Not even the win 64 beta comes
close.

If he's suck in windows because of windows games.... then simply setup a
dual booting desktop. I'd wager a bet that he'd eventually stop booting
into windows before long.

Well I went with the AMD 64 3000 and an ATI X800 Pro - everything seems far
better so far!

I use an 3000+ with MSI K8T Neo with promise raid sata working in 2260MHz
, it is very fast and easy to overclock, no problem, no crash, a real grey
supercomputer

from login the kde boot in less than 2.5s using the mdk 86_64
some programs like kpovmodeler, evolution , gimp etc start imediately, you
click the menu the program open like a flah if you not look with very
atention you miss the splash screen

Cya,

Marcio
