    Why don't you have a look at the GigaByte GA-P35C-DS3R motherboard? It supports DDR2 and DDR3 RAM. If you combine it with E6750 you have a nice basis. Buy a mid-range GPU and invest the rest in shoes.

    Had to dig this up, didn't want to start a whole new thread about it.

    So, if I upgrade around next summer (or whenever Vista is becoming more required), these are the things I'm going to upgrade:

    • Motherboard (supports Dual/Quad-Core + DDR2/3): $100-$150
    • Processor (Dual/Quad-Core): $100-$150
    • Memory 2GB-4GB(DDR2/3): $100
    • Video Card (Mid-Range DX10): $200

    So, that will be around $500-$600. Go for a motherboard that supports DDR2/DDR3, such as the Gigabyte shown earlier on this thread. A Dual-Core (maybe Quad?) that overclocks well, best bang for the buck. 2GB Memory (maybe 4GB), again, best bang for the buck/overclocker. And a Mid-Range DX10 Video Cad (able to run 1280x1024 or 1440x900).

    Sound good? I will be keeping my Ultra X-Finity 500 Watt PSU, 2x80GB HDD's, and I'll pick up a cheap DVD Burner on the way.

    Sound good? Am I missing anything?

    Thanks again guys!
