TriEclipse,
Not at this point. We've had our time in the spotlight. It's about time Intel fired back. It's a ongoing war that will never stop. But I'm no bandwagoner. No sir. Amd till death do us part. Ok maybe I went a little overboard with that last statement.

Ok this is my new setup and seems pretty legit. I want to know a few more things before I start shelling out money (mulah is tight I cant get a job im too young)Well here is the questions.

1. With this setup will I be able to run quake and a bunch of other advanced games on medium high settings without much lag?
2. I still need a heatsink/cooling fan for my cpu or I think I need one. Can you all suggest one that is legit with the setup i've chosen?
3. The memory I have chosen I have read costumer review that the two sticks aren't compatible with many mobos, is mine one of them? (that would stink to but these for the 200$s and then put em in my computer and they not work lol!)
4. If I start working on this computer over time im afraid that I will have to buy new parts again because the time it will take to build it
will be a decent amount thus allowing a lot of new things to be created and I just dont want to be outgraded before I even get to use it. Should I worry about this?
I would like to add one more thing I bought this case here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144162
and people keep saying that the power is a joke... Will the parts I have picked work with the power supply this comes with? If not what is a good Power supply but is in small size?hence the small space...

I'm actually going to be working on this for a while and I think I might save for a next gen card. Also ste the power supply you mentioned is that one that you recommend or no?
