hahaha

Since this is my first build and I dont plan on upgrading for awhile I
figured I go for med-to high end stuff
I guess its better to have it and not need it it then need and not have

Again I dissagree as your buying things now that you are not using and are paying a premium price for new technology. When you need it you can get it then at a resonable price.


my $0.02

You got a point tyler, but at a minimum I was lookin at getting the 6600gt or maybe even the 6800gs
the cheapest was 120-170 so there wasnt that much price diff
the 7600gt was 189

Im just glad i wont be messing with this dell/ celeron/ intergrated video anymore (will be the wifes)
I tried to play madden 05 and rogue spear just wouldnt do it.

I think I understand what you are trying to do and you already told me that you do not plan on upgrading your PC once it's built but I strongly recommend you get a Geforce 5xxx series or 6xxx series then upgrade to a cheaper 8xxx card when they are released later. Even the lower end of the 8xxx series will be better than todays cards and much cheaper I estimate $300.

Your looking at upgrading in a 6-8 month time frame if you do this. and a 5xxx or 6xxx will play WoW just fine and hold you over till then in most ocassions.
