Looking for a new gaming PC Built my last one but wasn't all that great. I want to build another one a better one but i always have trouble with the specs of mother boards and Video cards. I would like to spend about 2200 no higher then 3000 American Dollars. Below is my old Computer anything i could salvage out of that guy would be nice but the mother board is on its last legs. Any help would be nice.

EVGA 122-CK-NF68-T1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard (One Ram slot is broken)

Geforce 8800 GTS SSC

3.0 ghz Intel Core 2 Duo

Ok i shall suggest an *upgrade* while salvaging old parts

3GB DDR2 - reuse
PSU - reuse
hdd/odd/case/LCD - reuse

965BE + MSI 785GT-E63 AM2+/DDR2 mobo $159.99 (basically free mobo)

$199.99AR XFX HD 5870
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cost of upgrade : $360AR

Estimated gains in games, assuming 1920 x 1200 or lower

Interpolating: 8800/9800GT series around HD 5670 country, gains = 70%
