If I was in your shoes I would go for a 3200 Venice, a PCIE 6800gs and use your current CRT, this will ensure you get the best PC, and then in 2-3 months time you can get a 17" LCD.

bootle necked means ... when you have somthing extoridinary.. like a 1900xtx... right but a sempron 2800... it means your being held back... and the grafics was holding back the processor power with a 3800 and that fx5200 or fx5500
