I used to be a 3D Animator. Im got out of that field. So I mostly used my system for games, some graphics, surfing. I bought the new ATI Radeon 8500 card and of course it doesnt work with my supermicro mobo (not many things do). So I decided it was time to upgrade.
I got the following:
Asus A7V266-E mobo XP 1900+ processor 512mb ECC DDR ram Adaptec 39160 scsi controller Lian-Li aluminum case Enermax 550w power supply.
Should I cancel this order, or should I go with it?

go...but why not a new video card too? (your AIW radeon is fine...just a thought)
I don't claim to know anything about everything, I just tell people what I know. -PSB
Cancel it. I think there has to be a bigger difference in order to go and use that kind of money.
It's far to soon to upgrade your PIII for what you intend to do. Go and find yourself a cheap compatible GeForce 2 or GeForce 3 Ti200 for that matter.
Just look what's in the pipeline from Intel and AMD. You will be sorry within a year.
