Default Just Ordeed Abit NV8 mobo and 7800GT...

After recieving word that my 6800GT was on backorder and wouldn't ship for 21 days, I decided to just get a Socket 754 Abit NV8 mobo and a Leadtek 7800GT. Together, they came out to be roughly $50 more than an AGP 6800GT would be. I thought it was a wise move...even though its s754.... There is nothing wrong with my CPU and this mobo will allow me to keep it a little longer.

yea i'm gonna get a job this summer so i can save for when windows vista comes out and then i'll get a whole new mobo, ram, vid card, and processor. Vista will be able to take full advantage of the hardware out now, whereas XP limits the hardware's capabilities.
