The processor/motherboard is outdated but it really depends on what you are using it for.

Strictly gaming and watching anime pretty much.. I allready have a comp i use for general browsing and That i keep my larger media files on.


Only thing i can think of other than memory is to buy a better moniter that supports 2048 in a good refresh, and a logitech 5.1 speaker system.. can't recall name off hand but it has a wireless remote and costs approx 250

I can't afford to make the jump to 939/PCI-E (as that requires about $1000 for the parts i'd want

$150ish for board
$400 for the X2 proc
$250 for a single Card that i will get another and SLI later
$150 for a good power supply that can handle those

at the moment.. I just spent $300 on the 6800 recently and i'm still paying that off.

Right Now getting a car takes priority over this.. Hopefully saving up 5k for a Eclipse turbo GSR

I'd get an RX but they are quite expensive to service or get parts for.
