Well, my computer kinda sucks at the moment so I want to replace my mobo, video card, ram, and processor...
my current specs are as follows:

Mobo - Asus A8NE 939 motherboard
Video card - Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT 256mb
RAM - 1GB pc3200 dual channel
CPU - AMD Athlon 64 3200+
HDD - 2 x Maxtor DiamondMax 80gb RAID 0
and the 500w power supply that came with the case


I was thinking about changing that to these parts (only one vid card at first tho)

Mobo - BIOSTAR TForce TP45HP LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $109.99 or...

ASRock X38TurboTwins LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $159.99

Video Card(s) - SAPPHIRE 100225DDR3L Radeon HD 3870 512MB 256-bit GDDR3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $99.99 x2= $200.00

CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $169.99

RAM - 2X OCZ Platinum 2GB (4 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $112.00
