1.) 6600 is crap
2.) def. go for the 6600GT; it's only $159 AR right now for the eVGA one (evga is very good, chaintech is crap but known to oc good for some people)
3.) why the new mobo? just save up for a new amd cpu and a new sock939 mobo

If your going Intel, get a LGA775 not a 478. I would also consider 64bit processors. I would get a eVGA 6600 GT. Also never get a gigabyte board. Always stick with DFI, MSI, Abit.

Get a DFI board, and thrown in a few bucks more the eVGA 6600GT.

they are both great

don't expect to overclock with that motherboard though, cuz it has no OCing options

DFI has been **** up recently their nforce 3 and nforce 4 lines are doing well.

MSI has always been mediocre

Abit goes from good to bad more than my girlfriend changes her hair color

Gigabyte has always been a good solid motherboard manufacturer

..


LGA775 is the way to go if you want to stick with a dying technology. The 550 3.4's compare almost identical to an amd64 3200 as far as raw cpu power. However amd processors have a higher memory throughput due to the ondie memory controller.

The gigabyte k8ns line is a good amd64 939 overclocker. Others have said that the MSI neo2s are good overclockers, i havent been able to get anything out of this board.

are you talking about the MSI board he posted, because if so, that board is built for overclocking!
the MSI board is up there with the AV8 3rd eye and the DFI NF4 Ultra-D

as for the video card: Chaintech is not a reliable brand

and I would look for a Venice core Athlon 64, they overclock much better than any previous Athlon 64

with a neo4-f you can't OC good anyways so just get a winchester, they still OC decently
