I finally finished building my Opteron + DFI LP nf4 and it wasn’t what I was hoping (but it looks “nice”).
Use would be for occasional FPS gaming and game testing rig (I'm a mapper) that can play most of the half-way intensive FPS released in 2010.
The question is Do I get a newer, fastest GPU I can afford for it (Gf GTX 260-280?)
Or Finish a more mediocre LGA775 build, with something like a Gf 8800 gpu, or even upgrade the GPU from the 7900 in a few months ???
Ok I dug up some ebay prices, and it looks like a decent E6xxx series and 4gb 800 and an upgraded GF will be the best way to go. Used to be people knew old and new gear like the back of their hands on here... times change! (look at me, older, wiser, lazier, less time for gear)...
