Default I need some persuasion, im stuburn

Ok... i have $200 and i was planning on getting 1 of 3 things:
Widescreen monitor
Mp3 player
Or a mobo

I really need to save up for a new mobo, and try to get a new cpu..
But, all of the new cpu mobos use pcixpress, i have an agp graphics card

So i would have to get 3 things to get my comptuer upgraded...
But then we run into another problem, DX10 it coming soon and i dont want to spend money on a gpu if i will just have to replace it.

So what do u guys suggest

Thanks,
Alexsabree

if that p4 in your sig is a socket 775 you could buy a core 2 board and put that in it so when you decide to upgrade you will already have the board, thats if you go core 2 of course

It would be a MP3 player for me personally, but I actually need one. ^_^ - that smilie looks even better in the Ubuntu default text.

(EDIT)
U can run a Pentium4 on a C2D board??

Even if i could i would have to get ddr2 ram and get a pciexpress graphics card.. all of the new coreduo boards require them.

Thats why im stuck until i get old enough to get a job.. or get luckly like i did with my first build (Long lost family gave me a whole bunch of money for christmas)
