Hey guys and gals. Really stupid Q from someone who builds his own rigs. I was a cheapskate when I built my current platform about two years ago, and I bought a bottom-of-the-barrel ATI x300 SE video card (yes, that is the stench that you now smell from your monitor). The other components of the system are (without getting technical): AMD 939 4000+ 2.20 GHz CPU 4 Gigs PC3200 RAM SATA v.2 HD's MSI MB I'm thinking about sinking a PCI express 16x ATI X1950 Pro in the mix. Am I going to see noticeably faster "shrink" times if I drop in a card that's about 5x as fast as the piece of junk that I now have? I.e. is the GPU on the video card the limiting factor in "shrink" time, or is CPU processor speed the bottleneck in a reasonably-powerful system? I can overclock both my processor and my video card, but I can't tell where the bottleneck is in the process. I think that it's because my GPU is such a piece of garbage... Thanks for the feedback, in advance.
