new bits advice
I am in the process of upgrading... have so far done PSU, RAM, Case, HD, Soundcard,...
I am due to get money for christmas as that is what I have asked for from my relatives when they asked what I wanted. I dont expect to get a huge amount of money so will probably put some in myself towards these upgrades.
I want to get a new Mobo, Processor and Graphics card
I have been looking at the following:
Asus K8V SE Deluxe (socket 754, VIA K8T800, Serial ATA150 RAID, AGP 8x, ATX, 3xDIMM, USB 2.0, FireWire, sound, Gigabit LAN)
AMD Athlon 64 3400+ Socket 754
GeForce PCX6600GT 256MB PCI-E DVI-I VO <-- I wanna have decent graphics for a change... is this card anygood or should I fork out for the 6800 series?
Thing is am a bit out of touch these days and dont know how good these items are... if anyone has any ideas or alternatives or anything, I would really appreciate the input... I want to have a kick arse system and dont want to rush in and buy naff parts like I have in the past (Yay... 2 burned out PSUs, 1 burned out mobo, 1 destroyed grfx card and a fried soundcard... due to a PSU being faulty.. Now I dont buy cheap, I try to buy quality and nothing has burned out on me for at least 2 years (touch wood) well apart from my old deathstar that just died)
