Question Help with which way i go or buy?!?

I really need some help here and the only way i know i can find him is in here!

I'm going to make some ultimate upgrade to my computer (iLeana) :

Here are the things that i'm thinking in buying :

WD 36GB 360GD SATA-150 10,000RPM 8MB (Primary use)

WD 400GB 4000KD SATA150 7200RPM 16MB (Storage, mostly pr0n, lol)


* Memory ( which one i'm not sure yet but i want to 2GB, 3200 ) i will be grateful if someone can point me to some good and not high priced memory.

Ok here is the problem.. I really want to have my video card PCI -E but that would mean that i have to buy a new motherboard. (my motherboard is a "Asus P4P800 Deluxe"
And if someone can advice me what to do or what to buy, thnx in advance.

I also need to know if that if i buy a motherboard with PCI-E did i have to buy a new CPU or power supply??
Just in case my CPU is a (3.0Ghz with HT).

Thnx in advance, honestly

all the pci-e cards even if they dont have vga outs have convertors with them anyway. i agree to get the 6800 gt or ultra or the 7800 gt over the ati its better.

they have a 6800GTX?????

you may or may not have to buy a new mobo just check to see if it has a pcie16 slot in there lol.

and you may or may not have to buy a new psu, specs on te psu?

i would say wait on buying, and check out more benchmarks and see the X1800XL in crossfire. 6800ultra is just a waste of money, most GTs can OC to ultra speeds. and the ultra are 450 dollarse the same price as a 7800GT

and get some nice OCZ or G.SKILL ram
