I smell a really expensive graphics card candidate (that we can all drule over). You might want to wait a couple months though.

Im assuming you want AMD Since you stated the Prices Droped so Much.

Athlon X2 4800+
Some DFI Board.
Plextor DVD Drive
OCZ 600 Watt
Patriot 2GB Kit
Seagate barracuda SATA 320 GB w/16MB Cache (2 For RAID 0 or 1)


Ok, not a complete build But I just wanted to get the creative juices flowing.

I dont think now would be the best time for a new build. There are alot of things to wait for like Vista, Directx 10, and Nvidia 8000 series graphic cards. By then Conroe will be cheaper as well.

No one knows when vista will come out (or if it will).

The R600 is going to absolutley own the G80.

why would i wait for vista..? cant u just upgrade ur OS that u already have? i know i should wait for Dx10 and new graphics cards but maybe i could get a pretty nice vid card now..and it will be old when the new ones come out (and when i have enough money for an upgrade) so i can upgrade then..

Exactly.

Just upgrade later.


If I were you I would not be worried about Vista, as its a pile of garbage.
