    have money, what product shall i get?

    Hi

    have finally got the money to help buy some kit(b/day tomorrow)

    i will buy an athlon 64 processor, winny or venice (cost dependant, not sure on 3000 or 3200? may o/c a little. not sure what i need. play alot of FPS's and footy manager and startegy games - command & conquer etc.

    mobo:

    i am thinking of the gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 as it seems a good board, not SLI - don't want it really. Also, one of the ABIT fatality AN8 s939 boards. i play lots of games. the DFI seem good but to expensive.

    i can spend around £90 on a brand new mobo, but may go S/H to save some cash.

    i also want a pci-e g/card and i may go for the 6600gt as they seem good and a bit better than my 9800 pro card in my system now.

    is the above ok, should i get better or is there better than what i shortlisted out there for better money?

    i have 2 x 512 meg strips dual channel of geil ram. sata 160 gig hdd and ata 40 gig hdd. windows at present, but will get a matching sata drive.

    help, if i need it?

    Consider an epox board, the 9NPA should be good for mild overclocking and is fairly reasonably priced.

    you might be better off with a secondhand 6800GT than a 6600.

    you can pick up a decent second hand 6800GT for the same price as a new 6600GT now
    personally i would proberly stick with the gigabyte, they are ment to overclock a reasonable amount too.

    What about the Asus A8N! good board very stable I have two deluxe ones and I'm very very pleased with them.
    One has just been dismantled to make way for an other machine but on the remaining one I run
    Corsair (TWINX1024-3200C2PT) memory which is sound for the price with a
    3200 Winchester
    XFX6800GT.

    Very stable combo and lots of feature on the board as well.
    The deluxe has 8 sata connectors, 4 of the are sata2 ones.
    Worth considering.
