    Is my PC good enough!?????

    Ok without looking at my order sheet.

    480watt (LED Glowing!!!) therm... PSU
    P4P(standard) asus M/b
    PC3200 1024MB Ram (2slots left!)
    6800 Ultra (When it comes!) currently 5600fx
    120GB HD on Scsi
    cdrw(cd romdvd) and dvdrw (dvd cdrom)

    sh** 25ms response flat screen. 15"

    ok is there arything wrong with this set up apart from getting a quicker response time moniter??? example for games upcomming like Doom 3 Half life 2 etc etc?

    Yes its very nice but the monitor needs sorting. You will be wanting to enjoy doom 3 at 1600x1200 with effects of full which with that monitor isnt possible

    Buy a decent 21 inch CRT! No point having a Ninja rig if you have to look at it via a sh1te display, is there? :-)

    Maybe a heatsink will be required to drop the invisible temps on the imaginary CPU

    Its not generic monkey RAM is it? All generic RAM is evil stuff.

    Apart from that, its sound as a dollar pound.

    DO: Buy name brand memory!
    DO: Remember that motherboards need processors too!
    DO: Get a CRT and love yourself 3 years later when your screen isn't washed out and faded because you didn't buy an LCD!

    And DO enjoy that 6800 ultra! Gainward make great products.
