    Question Would this be money well spent?

    My current setup is Motherboard MSI K7N2 Delta, CPU AMD XP 2700+, RAM 1G KINGMAX DDR500, GRAPHICS CARD 6800 GT (OC TO ULTRA SPEEDS).
    I have just had my birthday and I've got 250 to spend on a upgrade, I'm going to get a AMD 64 3500 s939 and a Gigabyte K8NSNXP-939 - nForce3 mobo.Would this be money well spent?

    I think so, it will become avery quick system. You looking to overclock, maybe a different board.

    With a graphics card like that, there is a serious bottle nect at your processor. A 3500 would give you the power to match your graphics card. Well spent money I'd say...

    Not too bothered about overclocking, but I had considered going for a EPoX EP-9NDA3+ mobo would this be better than the Gigabyte.

    Money very well spent indeed. I'd go for the ASUS A8V though. They overclock pretty well (though you said that's not a concern) and more importantly they have many features at a good price. And the best thing? They have been around for awhile so they are 100% stable and free of the quirks that still plague many S939 boards.

    Dunno if it's better, depend on what you mean by that, but Epox has good reputation to be very stable.
