    well, i'd get both. intel mobos arn't that expensive if u only want an agp slot. as 4 the cpu, if ur getting a new mobo and cpu, might as well go with amd, if ur pressed on cash

    btw, do u still want my 5200?

    i would get both but including the gfx card i only have about 200 to spare...unless you want me to get another celeron and cheap mobo combo again...its either the cpu or mobo

    $40 Socket A mobo for Amd Athlon XP and Duron

    $40 gets u a AGP 8x mobo

    AMD AThlon XP 2600

    $100 gets a pretty good cpu. oc's pretty well

    if u want a good hsf, those are $20-40

    and my 5200 is $55. so u got enough

    hold up....

    40+100+20 = 160 and then unless you're planning on selling me your card for 40 then i dont have enough....maybe ill get some cheap hsf instead.

    or u can get this:
    AMD Athlon XP 2500
    and get this hsf:
    Thermaltake 7 for $18
    or
    Beastly one for 25
    or
    this fairly good one for $8

    hsf's arn't that expensive
