I say just save your money for a year until christmas of 2007 comes around and you'll have plenty of money to get the latest technology and highend machine. You should also wait til motherboards with DDR3 comes around early or mid 2008.

I'm fo shizzle, save up your money. IMO it's not worth upgrading that system anymore, agp will be outdated in a couple of years mang! What are you still using? DDR? no DDR2? The P4 478 socket? 32bit?

I'm for real though.

if you have an LGA775 P4 i would get a new motherboard with Core 2 support and migrate your system to that. then later you can upgrade to a Core 2

I would get a new CPU, which will probably require you to get a new motherboard. The 6800gs performs alright though, right? It's capable on med-high settings on most games..
