9500 is utter crap, 9800GT minimum for anything half decent. In fact, if you're after bang for buck performance, get the new HD 4860. They're about £80 and will kill anything up to a 9800 GTX while taking very little from the wall (because of the new 40nm GPU).

And the 9500 will support SM3 i would think...

Scrap Kingston, go Corsair.

Try to go Asus mobo if you can, better customer service than Gigabyte.

Not very experienced in Intel CPU's as im an AMD man myself but it seems fine for a cpu, probably good overclocking potential if you're into that sort of stuff.

ahhhh,the thing i cant afford more,i dont reside in the united states so newegg is out of the question,the site am buying stuff from is www.pcandparts.com.

and i cant afford a 9800 GC its around 150 ~ 200$,where as the 9500 is $60+ ,afforadable.

ahh dunno,nothing i cant do ,but settle with what i have.

thx for the advise any way

Can you stretch to a HD4670? That will be a good bit better than the 9500GT, isn't much more around here, and also doesn't need auxilliary power.

ahhh hd4670 impossible the

Sapphire HD4670 is 98$ + taxes=around 110$

Force3D HD4670 is 112$ + taxes=around 122$


guess ill have to settle with

Inno3D Geforce PCX 9500GT
Intel DG41rq
2gb ddr2
2.66 GHz - E7300 1066MHz/3M Core 2 Duo

Fair enough waelkd, if i were you, id just hang on, save up a bit and get better parts. It will benefit you in the long run.
