huh?? if you can afford such an expensive mobo, why are you buying such ****ty cards (the 6200 and x600 is trash)

you'll want at least a 6600gt or x800xl

the memory on video cards doesn't affect anything at all

Please note: I live in UK. America can afford to put the boards cheap over there but it can be expensive over here.

But thanks for all the input. I will definately consider.

Seeing that i have to keep asking.

Would someone also after looking at my above post be able to give me some tips on what to look for in certain things when upgrading and deciding which is the best for the money.

Cheers

actually, if you know what you're doing you can get the 6200 to perform as well as a stock 6600GT.

Requires some overclocking and unlocking pipelines via Rivatuner but it can be done

Just look there. A whole bunch of people who have made monsters of their 6200's and gotten really good benchmarks

It's a diamond in the rough I tells ya

he didn't, he OC'd his CPU from 3200+ speeds to 3500+ speeds. There is a sticky at the top of the overclocking section so if you are interested in OC'ing start there
