E6320 usually cost the same as E6300 but it has extra cache memory. Get E6320 if could find it for around the same price.

Where do you shop? Suggestion for a new MOBO would be one with a P35 chip.

Also your hard drive should be SATAII with 16Mb of cache.

And your power supply might look to weak if we don't know the brand and spec for it.

Just my personal opinion, I would rather get the 8800GTS 320MB, they should nearly be around the same price.

i personally don't care for 7950gt's because u can easily get a gs, and overclock it, get an 8800gts 320mb, which has ultimate bang for the buck or you can get x1950xt overclock it to xtx speeds (w/o the extra 256mb ram) and u got a 300$ card in ur hands

K is it worth upgrading from a 7950gt to a 8800gts for an extra $150?
