    Next Friday will be the next upgrade day. I will have around 300-400USD or so to spend.

    Top option: Auzen X-fi Prelude will be around 260USD. I just sold my X-Fi and had to go back to onboard. Which I totaly hate this is my top pick.

    2ed option: All out Dander Den water cooling for Video card. D44ve is sending me a block and 175 Watt TEC for my X1950XTX but I will need a pump and rad. for this project. I might do this anyway no matter what on top of any other upgrade.

    3ed option: 2ed video card X1950XTX or X1950CF card. Or I might wait and get the x2900XT and use my x1950XTX for physics.(When the driver comes it will work and I will be ready)

    4th option: another 2 gigs of 8500 putting me up to 4 gigs and windows Vista 64bit.

    5th option: what do you guys think?

    2nd option, make the most of the TEC that d44ve is sending u be a shame to have it go to waste or underutilized :), then see how much doe u have left for the sound card or get a slightly cheaper sound card to tie u over for now untill u have the money again:),
    Sound we can live without ( i know how u feel bout on-board sound though :laugh:) but cooling comes first imo.
    Good luck with the up-grade :rockout:

    Cheers gam
