    New Upgrade Idea?

    This Is my new plan:
    1 DFI LANPARTY UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard $168.00

    2 AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz Socket AM2 Processor Model ADO3600IAA5DL - OEM $59.00

    3 Patriot eXtreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PDC22G6400LLK - Retail $173.00-$50.00 rebate=$123.00

    4 connect3D 3071 Radeon X1900GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 VIVO HDCP Video Card - Retail
    Item #: N82E16814142084 $164.99

    Oh, and a thermalright Rev B bracket for my XP-90 and ToRnAdo.


    Now, Before I am told not to get that vid card I am saying its transitional, untill I see what is coming down the road later this year. I also have the option of later upgrading my cpu to a dualie opty or higher clocked athlon. For $59.00 what the hell, cause they can do 3ghz or close to it.

    I could do alot cheaper on a motherboard, any recommendations on a sub $100.00 board?

    Thats it, I have a headache from neweggs website

    You don't need an SLI board (especially with an ATI GPU). The MSI K9N platinum or Asus M2N-E may be better choices.

    The gpu is transitional I may go sli in the future, 2 x 8800 gts in sli is possible. I can always sell it. But if I dont plan on it yes I can go with others that are less.
