That printer prints 10 PPM the one I have, there is no way I'm getting rid of it. Secondly, I really have no need for a new printer. And I was checking review and the MSI overclocks just as well as the DFI...

the MSI overclocks well, but the DFI overclocks the best. all the world records for Athlon 64 overclocking has been done on the DFI board.
I've seen an FX-55 at over 4GHZ on one of these boards.

anyway, I'm not here to tell you "get the DFI"
I can recommend it to you, but it's up to you whether to get it.

and definately don't go Radeon X series. the 6600 GT will outperform the X800 GT and X600 (it will double the X600's speed)
bu I would try and get a 6800 plain, and softmod it to get 16 pipes.

Everyone in here will always say "get a dfi", but that msi would be fine. and do as apok suggests; for a good budget card go with a plain 6800, i thing they are like $190... and that will kill any x800 card.
