I am currently at a p4 2,53 at Abit BE7 with 2x 512 mb ddr 333 kingstond hyperx, an geforce 6800gt AGP and 2 hard drives on a pci raid controller and 1 hard drive on IDE and 2 burners and 1 dvd-rom player and of course a sound an tv card. Unfortunately upgrading my 5900xt to a 6800gt didnt create a huge gain in performance since my cpy is quite old. I was thinking about buying an 3700+ san diago and replacing just the motherboard and cpu. DO you adive a certain motherboard (only choice I have seems to be old (asus) nforce 3, kt800 or an uli from asrock that has agp and pci slots but is a low budget board.
All advice is welcome.
MSI K8N-Neo4-F. I don't own one myself, but Extremetech.com gave it a good review, and its fairly cheap. Look around; that page has fairly extensive reviews of current socket 939 mobos, although the prices have gone down a bit since they were written.
