I am considering Upgrading my machine from what i have now(look below) to something with HT probably a 2.6ish
I was going to sell all the parts that would have to go to a friend. BTW this would be likely sometime in september.

This means changing my:

MoBo - (please suggest a board if possible) looking for long term future use and the best price.
would like to enclude S-ATA, Raid, firewire, USB 2
RAM - might go, is it worth changing from DDR333 to DDR400?
CPU - P4 2.6c or suggestion

as for my CASE, i have a Mecca case with an enlight 420W PSU was considering getting a better case. one that is QUITE, and will cool well enough for the Radion 9500, side window is not imortant but would be nice.

In the end i would like to be able to use the money from my friend + $200 more Canadian

Is this possible?

Any help would be great thanks




ASUS P4S8X - P4 2.4B - 2 x 512M DDR333 - ATI 9500 Pro(Sapphire) - WD 80G HD (8M Buffer) - SAMSUNG SV0844D 8G HD - LG 16X DVD - Yamaha F1 CDRW - Iomega Zip 250 int.
