Money elsewhere.. there is newer socket/cpu coming in the next years that should worth the wait considering you already have a nice system.

Go to a good re-hab that specializes in gambling addiction! :tongue:

Wait for now and save the money for a board that will support DDR2

ASUS P5WD2 Premium
Intel 3.73 EE @ 5.6Ghz
XMS2 DDR2 @ 1180Mhz

Buy the biggest bottle you can, of your favorite booze. When you've finished drinking it, rebuild you rig inside the bottle. You might want to get an MT turion to do it with.

wait for socket M2 like they said, i mean unless you got a PIII >1GHZ or something then an upgrade right now is not really good

AMD A64 3200+Venice @2.65GHZ
DFI Lanparty UT NF4 Ultra-D
OCZ 2x512mb EL Gold VX PC3200 ram 2-2-2-8
evga eGeforce 6800GT 256mb GDDR3 ram
Enermax 485W PSU
Bios 6/23

Your building a gaming rig. Stay with single core CPU.

How much did you win? Get some beer and hookers and leave your rig alone.

I had a similar question. See the P4c rig in my sig. I have this WANT to get a better platform (case/PSU) and a 7800gt & double my RAM and a mobo with more SATA ports and all that good stuff.

But I get the feeling to sell current rig, then spend $500 to upgrade the case/PSU/video and the CPU to socket 939 3700+ would not be worth it with the socket M2 around the corner?

I should probably wait until next Fall ('06) and go with an "NVIDA-8800 card or ATI-equiv" and a dual core socket M2 & DDR2 ram (what happen to DDR3 soon?) and all that good stuff...?

Should the AGP 6800gt, 1gb RAM, and p4c 3.2 hold me until next fall as far as games go? I hate turning details down too much...

Unless you have a specific task that you need to go faster, like complex computations or video rendering, don't upgrade yet. You have a nice rig for now and wouldn't be happy with an upgrade.

I would stay away from hookers. Instead, he should go his nearest video rental store & pick up some adult movies. It is safer and cheaper form of entertainment. He don't have to blown all his money on a blown job. As they say, do it yourself and save money.

I forgot to mention, buy a lot of alcohol and beer. Once you become tipsy, you never be wrong. Beside, treating yourself can never be wrong. As they say, you get to love yourself first before you love other.
