I got my 1 GB of ram today, (it owns, it OWNS!, the loading screens in half life 2 are down to about 20 seconds, rather than 60) and I have made a big decision (ok, it's not that big). I'm putting my watercooling project on hold to upgrade my PC. I have a budget of about 650, and I want to upgrade my processor and move to PCI-E. I want to get a new motherboard, a video card, and a processor.
I think I will go with:
DFI lanparty ultra d
Total is about 675.
What do you think? I have quite a few other questions too, but for now I just need to know that.
