wow. You guys are helpful, thanks. But I need more help lol.

So if I take Ryans advice, and spend a lot on a video card and a bit on ram ( i like this idea), when i upgrade my motherboard later the expensive video card will be useless... crap. And if i upgrade the motherboard now, I'll need a new processor as well?... crap, might as well buy a new computer.

Could someone explain PCI-E and AGP. My motherboard will only support AGP video cards? So that makes this one out of the question i guess.

How much is the AGP 6600GT roughly. (a link would be awesome)
gold your final advice seems to be the best right now. How well will the setup you mentioned be able to run games?

I should mention that i would like to hook up 2 monitors for AutoCAD purposes. Can i keep my old video card hooked up and use it for one and the new one for the other? (This may also be a ridiculous question)

Heres a fun game for you. Make me a computer and leave a link. (canadian store)
