  1. What's your system usage? Budget? Why get a mobo with integrated graphics when you're buying a vid card? Those prices seem a little high, too - we can get the P5LD2 for $106 in the states.

    If you want to do gaming, then I recommend you step up your vid card - the 6600LE is a lame duck...6600GT or better would be my recommendation.
  2. No games, I use it for trading stocks and for a bit of video stuff (converting, not really editing).

    Those are the prices from one place, today I went to two shops so they'll get me their prices tomorrow so I'll see if they're any better
