its a gaming workstation hybrid . its my old system only. the power supply failed recently , since it was in warranty i got a replace ment. the guy came back and found that the 8800gts has a prob . ( the system switched of as soon the smps was connected to gpu .
he took the mobo, gpu psu, ram and cpu wth him to the service labs.
but a theft took place or god knows what he misplaced the mobo, wthe cpu and ram on it.
so its a forced upgrade now.
thats why iam only upgrading the mobo,cpu and ram.
how much is windows 7 64 bit lineups pricing like?
ill stick to xp for now and update around q2 .
ill need 64 bitfor 4gb + ram right?
and iam not sure if gskill will be avbl here , cud u give another option .
by the way how is hyundai ram? crap or ok?
as far gaming is concerned, i play more mmorpg than pc games . but i do play top notch titles wch become popular.
and ill definitely try crysis warhead on my system.

i am not yet readt to kick my crt yet.
how is asus designo 23.5 inch IYO?
i run 3ds max ,maya ,zbrush, photoshop,flash , toonboom , painter essentials.
Windows 7 is about $100 for the OEM version right. I doubt it'll change. That's actually cheaper than the upgrade versions.
If you want to play newer games, you will need at least the HD 5770 ($150) for resolutions up to 1600x and at least the HD 5850 ($300) for resolutions above 1900x. To max out Crysis on 1900x resolutions, you need at least the HD 5870 ($400).
It is not necessary to upgrade the PSU. I'd recommend it if you want to Crossfire.
I'm not an expert on the best monitors, but all Asus ones are pretty good.
Since you're running high GPU use programs, I highly recommend thinking about getting a new card. I would want to get at least the HD 5850.
Not having enough RAM won't "bottleneck" the CPU, it will just contribute to an overall slower computer. Any new computer should use 4GB of RAM. You will not be happy with the performance with 2GB of RAM.
Latency should never be more than 7. The highest speed the P55 supports depend on the board. All of them default to 1333 mhz until you start overclocking. Typically, you don't need more than 1600 mhz sticks.
well, my dealer cant find msi p55 gd 65 , he says it ainy available and is taking too long to get the components.
anyone can suggest an alternative for the mobo in the same price range.
i dont want the intel original mobo .
in case p55 availability becomes a problem ,i think ill go with the core i7 930.
please tell me ram and mobo for that too.
