Hey, thanks for the reply.
I have (x2) 512mb DDR 3200 (only get 992mb because they are different manufacturers), I have a Radeon 9250 (256mb) PCI, not sure about the power supply, believe it's 250W (can change that later) and have an atx mid-tower (gonna get a new one too).
I bought my stupid card RIGHT before 2.0 shading became standard, and I don't want to make the mistake again, but I'll worry about that after I get the mobo/cpu (as well as everything else).
EDIT: I REALLY think I wanna go with this CPU:
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ 2000MHz HT Socket 939 Processor
* 90 nm San Diego
* 1MB L2 Cache
It is retailing for $235 on newegg.com. Does this seem good? If so, I can then worry about what motherboard I'll need, heh.
It recommends this:
BIOSTAR TForce4SLI Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
Is there anything better? It's only $90 (about my price range).
Things are making a LOT more sense now
