Ya.. I'd nab a newer nForce board... maybe a mATX if you're ok w/ it. But it's a good budget anyways.

By saying "without spending more money....", you don't offer anyone to make improvements, but you could make the system worse. You basically contradicted yourself.

The Athlon 64 3000+ or 3200+ can be found around $160, and deal out so much more power then the Semrpon 64 line.

No. People could say things like "don't get that brand" or "get a less expensive part X so you can spend more on part Y" stuff like that.

A product of the same technical specs obviously wouldn't be the same price as a product with the same technical specs of another brand. If it is, it's a rare case and probably not of the same quality.
