Question Doing computer upgrade comparing parts

Hello some of you may have posted on my other thread, I had some questions about some parts i am planning on buying, First of all i heard that on you can order like 500$ worth of stuff and make them payments is this true? IF so i am goin to do it! Now for the parts


Corsair valueselect 1GB

Video card



Amd AThlon 64 3000

Now my question is the price range in these items, the prices in the motherboard;video card; and ram. Would it really effect me that much to just get the cheaper 1 the 6600? And with the 6600GT card, would i still run games really good with the 128mb memory? or do i need to get the more expensive card the 6800GT and get the 256mb? Please reply thanks a bunch for your time!

Depends on what games you want to play, and at what settings. If you have the money, get the 6800GT, the 6600GT is a good card but it can't run the latest games on high settings, the 6800Gt can.

ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe
AMD Athlon XP 3200+
Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu
OCZ 1GB Platinum PC3200 Rev2 Dual Channel
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
