Need Help Buying MOBO/Grapics Card

I want to rebuild my computer from ground up with a few components from my old computer. I have a P4 2.8c gh HT cpu, a ddr400 GeIL Value 512MB(buying another one). Just bought a COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power RS-430-PMSR/P Max: 400W, and COOLER MASTER Centurion case with side panel window. And i need to know what motherboard/grapic card should i buy with these compents since i want it to be a game machine. I liked my oldi 9800pro but i willing to try other cards for performance/cost effencient since i think i want to travel with pci-e direction.

Thank you for the replies before hand, Albert

  1. What's your budget?

    A new graphics card is what will do most. And another 512MB.

    Moving to a PCI Express motherboard will be safer for future upgrades since AGP will disappear soon.

    I would suggest an AMD64/Opteron if you want to change motherboard.
  2. my budget is around $400-450 for graphics card and motherboard
  3. For gaming...
    1. Mobo: Asrock 939Dual for around $68
    2. Get another 512MB of that Geil for around $40.
    3. A64 3200+ (Venice)for $161
    Total: $269 plus shipping.
    Use the 9800Pro for now and you can upgrade the video card when you have a few more dollars or the 9800Pro is no longer good enough.
  4. i accidently fried my 9800pro
  5. actually im thinking of doing this since ima get paid about 1500 in a couple of days.

    AMD Athlon 64 3200
    ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe
    ASUS Geforce 7800GT

    Pretty good $800 dollar setup??
  6. Yes, but save a $100 by getting the Epox Ep-9NPA+ Ultra or Abit AN8 Ultra. Use the extra money on RAM and a game. :wink:
