Default Review this New Gaming Build...

Ok here is the system I plan on building please check specs and make sure this will work:

Motherboard:
Gigabyte Motherboard GA-K8N51PVMT-9
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813128001R

Processor:
AMD 3200+ Athlon 64
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103535

Desktop Case:
Biohazard II
http://www.evertek.com/viewpart.asp?auto=18923

HardDrive:
Seagate Barracuda 80GB SATA
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148107

Memory:
gigaram 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM System Memory
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820221005

Optical Drive:
LITE-ON Combo Drive Black Model SOHC-5236V-61 - OEM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106029

This is at the point I am at. I need suggestions on a good solid PCI-E vid card for around $100 (256mb) with DVI and SVGA outs. Also would like to know if I would be ok with the stock cooling or if you guys know of any cheap 939 cpu fan/heatsink with blue leds. Of course this is a lower end graphics system and I just need to check wether all the specs will check out that is why I love coming in this forum with such experienced builders. You all have helped me become the builder I am today and for that I thank you! If you guys could get back to me on this one asap that would be great as I dont have much time on this build.

very fast clocks but the pipelines are lacking this thing can play most games out right now, at about 50fps.

cheap fan and heatsink for 939

It all looks ok. Except I dont recomend buying a refurbished motherboard. It shouldnt be too much more, and you could get it new.

Then point me to your thread so I can get you out of here.

EDIT: Rofl, the "moving out of the Dell" guy? I've been trying to ignore that thread for so long. Funny thing is I'm getting my friend to do the same thing. A little advice; all you need is a socket-compliant motherboard, a new case, and a new power supply. Everything else can be recycled.

Not very well. Expect FPS of around 15-25.

Nothing runs Oblivion well at high graphics. A 7900GT is the minimum for comfortable play in Oblivion on High on 1280x1024. X1900XT is probably as high as one would want to go.

Its not cheap, playing Oblivion at high.

Yea, but the 6800 shoot-offs (anything not a Vanilla, GS, GT, or Ultra) give me the willies.
