ATHLON XP ( barton ) enough to handle games, just get a nice graphic card and ram to suit your games.

Wow thx I'll take a look at that site.

I heard that the AMD 64 754 socket mobo was outdated for the 939. I know i can't get a 939 but is there a big differnce in performance vs a AMD 64 754 socket and a AMD XP socket A? Thx guys

Yeah if i can sqeeze it in ill definitally get the pc 3200. So far im looking into the AMD CP instead of the AMD 64 becuase i heard that the old 754 socket 64 motherboard are inferior to the 939 AMD 64. But i wonder if a top of the line AMD XP is better than an AMD 64 754 socket.

I think these parts will be best:
* Radeon 9600 pro
* the Gigabyte K8NS Pro
* Athlon 64 2800+
* Thermaltake 480W PSU (350W wouldn't be enough)
* Farcry (hey, it doesn't cost extra!)
* Corsair XMS High performance
* Mitsubishi 17" monitor ($59) - not new, but this is a good monitor
