I already made my decision, if i do stick with my AGP card then I'm getting this one:
It's one of the best AGP cards around if you dont wanna spend $300 for a 7800GS.
If i do go with a new mobo with pci-E, then I'm getting a DFI Lanparty mobo, and a 7600GT or any other pci-E card in that range.
Here is an "open box" version of the mobo i want.
I know newegg used to call them refurbished but, not anymore. Is it bad to get a mobo liek that? Cuz if im just missing out on the extras in the box its ok. I already have rounded cables and I can download all the drivers from DFI's website. Should i be ok to get the opne box one? or would it be better to get the new one for $50 more.
Your opinions really matter to me. Should i get the 6800XT AGP? or a new mobo that has a PCI-E slot? and Will an "open box" mobo be ok, especially a DFI Lanparty?
