if ur planning to buy either the nvidia 7900GT KO or the
4200+ dual core processor or both i'd suggest getting also the PS as well because its gonna need more juice to power them up.

by the way wrong forum

moved to building and buying.

i wouldn't really consider the 4200+ these days, either look at possibly overclocking an x2 3800+ or buying an x2 4600+. other than that the list looks good

Just make sure you have a PCI Express x16 slot on your motherboard to use the video card with.

4200 fits in my price range, considering I won't be overclocking, and it's 200 bucks for a good processor. How much better is it than the 3800? I want to save cash, and will this be a big step up from my previous build?

if you wait a few weeks, you can get the new g8800 from nvidia, for about the same price as the 7950gx2(least thats what i heard from the grapevine)
