    I currently have this setup:
    Pentium 4 Prescott 3GHz HT
    2x512MB DDR400
    XFX 6800XT (clocks 350/1000)
    Intel D865PESO
    Bottlenecks?

    This is my future system, should have it in about 24 days:
    Pentium D 915 Presler 2.8GHz Dual-Core
    2x512MB DDR400
    XFX 6800XT (clocks 350/1000)
    ASRock 4CoreDual-VSTA LGA 775 VIA PT880 Ultra
    Bottlenecks?
    It's basically just a new processor and motherboard, recycling RAM and GPU.

    Get a E4300, the preslers are hot and no where near as good as a allendale! The VSTA-775 is a good cross over board, but you cant get high FSB clocks out ov em from my experience!

    Then get some faster ram, its cheap as chips @ the mo!
