    OK well I finally got my birthday money and im gonna upgrade very soon. Heres what im looking at now.


    RAM It is cheap but got lots of 5 stars review, any thoughts about it. Gonne be get a gig of it.

    CPU Barton 2500+, gonna oc it to a 3200 at least.

    MoboI think this NF7 is good, should be good to oc.

    So all said and done im up to 300 so far. Gonna get a sleeving kit, Arctic Silver.

    Any recomendation on a good not to expensive heatsink?

    And i'm gonna try and get a 9800xt off of ebay for a little bit cheaper, any specific brand i should go with, saphire, abit, etc?

    save ur 300 and get an amd64 and just use ur ram u have now. when the time comes and u have more money get better ram. as for the video card i would save that money also and get a 6800gt for the same price. ur spending the same money this way and getting 3 times the performance!

    So I should buy an Amd 64 and put in 512mb of pc2100 and run a raedon 9000, no lets be realistic, Im don't have the money for amd 64bit. I don't want to buy one part a month either, im looking for a decent gaming rig that will last a year or two and right now this should be good. I see no point in even going 64 bit yet either as the rest of the world isn't that far along yet, no 64bit windows, so the full potential isn't reached yet. So my next upgrade will be 64.

    Ya, waiting for something that long is not worth the improvments it might offer. Everything youve chosen looks great, the ram is a little iffy but looks ok.

    The biggest improvment you will see is in games. When comparing my buddies 2500 with mine in normal program use i couldnt really see much of a diffrence to be honest. Exept when running many apps becuase i only have 256mb of ram.

    Go with the NF7-S ver.2. Make sure it has the nforce 2 chipset.
