Ok, here's the story:
As of now I need to upgrade my computer from a socket 754 to probably a 939. Also upgrading from good ol' AGP. I have a $1000 budget. I was thinking along the lines of a:
AMD 4400+ ::from:: AMD 3000+
ASUS A8N SLi mobo ::from:: DFI nF3 LANparty
Nvidia 7900GT ::from:: Nvidia 6600GT
2GB RAM (don't know) ::from:: 2x512MB Corsair XMS
So, with that said. I'm not big into OC'ing, although I have, but minimally. It's main use will gaming but also basically multi-tasking. I will be re-using my old HD, sound card, power supply, DVD drives, and case. I am also looking into some type of CPU heatsink as I doubt the stock heatsink will work, perhaps a Zalman. I do intend to run SLi, hopefully, sometime in the future.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
