I wanted the same thing, then I asked myself this: "Is it IMPERATIVE that I run the newest games at the fullest settings?" The answer of course is no, so I settled for the system listed in my sig. I couldnt be happier.

-AMD 64 3000 Winnie
-eVga 6600GT (PCIe)
-Mushkin Dual Pack PC3200 (512 X2)

Well I'll take that into consideration CS.

I've got enough money for board and wondering if I should purchase it and run it with the stuff I've got already. I'm new to all of this and don't want to go breaking my current stuff, the RAM, Sound/Graphic Cards will be no probs but I'm unsure about transfering the CPU and that thing that I think is called an radiator.

I cannot stress enough will the board have the acquired sockets on for two fans, thermometor and all sorts my case has.

This is how computers are. If you want max settings for cheap then get an xbox.
