Considerations?

Graphics
----------
What kind of slot does ur mobo have. AGP/PCI-E
$$$ in ur bank
Do you want to play games at the highest resolution for the next 1 1/2 years

Sound
--------
What kind of speakers do u have/have room for (difficult to setup a crazy sound system in a dorm)
$$$ in ur bank
Going to be doing recording vs just playback
Load on processor - do u care

etc. etc. etc.
