It's an alright machine but you're limiting yourself with the scalability... you should probably consider getting a mobo that has PCI-E as that is apperantly going to be the video standard very soon.

If you go for PCI-E you will need to change to a socket 939 processor as I haven't seen any PCI-E boards with a 754 socket.
