I would definately recommend getting a pci-e system vs agp. This card would be fine and less money:

http://www.swiftlink.com.au/xpertvis...?cPath=268_271

The memory increase on that card is probably a waste, just get the 128mb.

And be carefull about cheap psu's as Ste said, but quality combos are ok.

ok that card looks nice, but wat would be better for my build, radeon or nvidia?

and here is the link to the case+psu

ok for the gfx card, its pretty much outa these ones here

if i get a $150-200 vid card, then i'll buy a better psu, if i get a $250 vid card, then i'll stick with that case n psu, then after a month or so i'll grab a better one, cos i desperatly want this computer, and the cheaper it is, the sooner i get it

Go with nvidia, they are more bang for the buck right now....

u need to find out what power supply is in that case, it more than likely is a cheapy...but its up to you....u cant find any antec case/psu's??

edit...wow i see the quality case/psu's are pricey compared to what u have there, but dont cheap out or you could fry something...

antec and coolermaster are probably the best for the price from that website.

the antec cases(im talking bout the cheaper range, not the expensive ones) are ugly, and what i might do, is just get that case + psu, then in a little while i'll buy an antec one, and re-use the other one, cos i got the parts for a ****ty computer at home, just needs a psu

:edit: there is a coolermaster centurion 536 i think it is(thats off the top of my head) but is fairly cheap and its very sexy(silver n blue)

also read the post i made before your post, i edited in a selection of gfx cards that i like
