I will just wait a paycheck or two to see if I can't find any really good deals on a GPU..
they are already $30-$50 cheaper than what I paid for mine... same brand.

Yea I know but since I'm making enough money I may purchase an 8800GTS 320 if I can't spring for one...however I would pay like 80 most for the X1950Xt after I sold my 7900GS for 90-100 bucks or something.

Well look at that, now it's $10 off and is priced at $499 before rebate. I hope it lasts but probably won't with my luck with Newegg sales.

Becuase my 7900GS is going to annoy me to hold it off by the next time I can actually upgrade...which will be February of 08 when I get 11,000 from a trust fund ( I'm 18 then)

The X1950Xt however will last that long...see my point?

There aren't many upgrades left for my system except for the GPU....

I was thinking quad core but after I found that my E6300 is at 3.64ghz I think I will be quite fine rofl...and thats 515 FSB meaning its faster than say an E6600 clocked @ 3.64ghz.

I've even bought little upgrades like a new mousepad, an extra DVD-rom drive, and a gel wrist mouse pad lol....there just isn't much left to upgrade in my system unless I go quad-core.

Just get an X1950PRO or 7900GS...whichever you can find cheaper. They both are very similar in performance and price so neither is bad.
