Not a bad rig, although you might be kicking yourself when PCIX and the new socket processors come out...

i don't actually care about that. My pc is good enough to run just about anything. So I don't care if there is some new technology on the way. Plus I live in South Africa which means that when It comes, it will be way to expensive to buy.

When they come out the older stuff will get cheaper. Not right away of course but after a bit prices will drop a good deal on the old stuff. Right now I am waiting for new vid cards so I can buy a nicer radeon with my 200$.

Echo that. I'm waiting for AMD socket 939 and the next gen video cards to pick up a "low end" A64 and either see how the next gen cards are or hopefully find a Radeon 9800 XT for like <$200 :D

Nice PC though, aside from the video card. I wish nVidia had never made that piece of crap, it tricks consumers into thinking it's a good card with tricky marketing :mad:
