What he said. I looooove mine Mr. Green the 6800GT will definatly outperform the 9800.

That processor is ok. What are you planning on doing with this system? Just gaming, or lots of other stuff too?

And second, about the RAM... if you're gettin DDR2 RAM (XMS2), why are you only getting PC3200? Go for the PC5400. Do they even make DDR2 at PC3200? www.newegg.com/Product...6820145539

Ok got the system all setup and rockin it has a very nice overclocker for the CPU an the Ram I tell it how much and it changes all the voltages and such for me. But I figure I will leave it stock for now, no sense in burning it up the first week lol


And what a bargain I got --- 2 - 1gig sticks and only got charged for 1
