What's your point? So I want to get a wider variety of opinions and make sure I get the best deal? What are you trying to say?

Well, if you look at that other thread, it looks like they are basically saying the same thing. Get an A-64 processor, it will be much better than the XP.

Like I said before, if you don't care about upgrading, socket 754 will be fine, as will AGP.

If there is any way you can swing the 6600GT along with it you will have a great build for that price range.
