is your sig what you have now?
cause if it is...

your sig says you have 1gb of DDR2 800, can't you just get this?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813128296

and your sig also says you have a sapphire X1900XT 512MB you dont need another one if that's what your doing.

and get a gigabyte mobo, just to be sure. never really heard anything about albatron mobos.

if you sig isnt what you have now, then your upgrads should do fine.

Dont mind the sig, that was wut i was goin to upgrade, then i realized i needed a new PSU for a X1900XT (and realized i bought a crap PSU) and then i saw that for the RD600 chipset, you can OC the FSB and the memory bandwidth wont increase, so i can OC my CPU without OCin or settin a memoryin divider for my RAM, and i can OC my RAM without OCin the CPU, etc. Also the 800 isnt in the budget. The only thing i'm usin out of the sig is the HP Lightscribe DVD drive, the scythe ninja, and the Kingwin Mutant X-Series.

you could go for something mroe lower end i nthe video department. i've heard that you can unlock a X1800GTO to 16 (or is it 18) pipes and overclock it so it's close to a X1800XT.

Yea the GTO unlocks to 16 but only certain cards do it and i really want the 1900XT. I'm not goin to get DX10 since it'll be a while till stuff needs DX10 to run (probably around 1-2 years till it requires DX10) and the 1900xt is powerful enough to run Vista and games for a long time (since alot games now run fine on onboard graphics ;)) Well i'm newegg right now, orderin... everythings good...... now comes the hard part..... WAITIN LONGER!!!!!

wel then everything looks good, the X1900XT will definately last until R600 comes out next year, and when you get 2gb you should be set.

good luck, hope nothin gets lost in the mail. i hate when that happens, **** ups.

lol.... i have a feelin, the X1900XT is goin to last me a good 3-4 years, but i'm goin to get the urge to upgrade it next year and i'll have to fight it and stay with the XT till around 08. But, it'll last me.
