    What's more important for lots of MCs + Client Mod: video card, CPU or memory?

    Hello all!

    Well, short story, my video card is burning and will need a replacement. I don't want to spend $200+ again (it's a HD4890, a top card just 2 years ago) so I will get a simpler one.

    The video card has to have 1GB memory, but other than that I don't care much for the rest. I'm an ATI user, never tried a NVidia.

    Specs:
    Intel I7-860 QuadCore 2,93ghz 8MB Cache L3
    Corsair 2x2GB DDR3-1600mhz C7 (low latency)
    MB Asus P7P55D Pro
    HD 500GB SATA-II 32MB

    Suppose Jonatas will release a client mod, won't the video card be essentially useless, making the specs above more important than the video that will be barely used because the framerate will be no more than 10 (I think it was 1 in neobot) when client is not focused?

    I am tired of having to replace video cards, they are usually the only component that gives me problems :/

    I don't think it will matter so much since you have all of those clients minimized most of the time. My build is similar to yours and I have a radeon 5770 which is ati, it was somewhere around $150 when I bought it a year ago and gets the job done

    CPU, ruinning a hexacore at 3~ ghz, and 10 bots and I am down, or well, that was in 1.0.6, now with 1.0.7 cpu usage is atleast halved, if not more.
