Do you already have an AMD 5200, or an 8800? Because both of those things are pretty old hardware and I wouldn't recommend buying either.

||Core 2 Duo E4600 @ 2.4 GHz (OC coming soon) || Biostar TP45HP || 4GB Kingston DDR2 667 RAM ||
Sapphire HD 4670 512mb @778/1140 || Antec Trio 650w || Maxtor 250gb 7200 RPM HDD || Lite-On DVD-RW || Black Aluminum Case||

I'd only recommend those together if you either got a REALLY good deal on them, or you were building a folding rig.

Instead of getting a 5200+ you're better off spending an extra $7 for one of these: - AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma 2.7GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2&#43; 95W Dual-Core black edition Processor - Processors - Desktops

The 8800gt was replaced with the 9800gt but a 4830 is slightly faster and is cheaper: - HIS Hightech H483FN512P Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
And it comes with S.T.A.L.K.E.R, aw yea!
