Hey guys! Well I'm finally getting some cash together for a new box, you all gave me some good advice a few months ago when I was going to do it, but I could'nt until now. So I'm sticking with what alot of you suggested but I want you ideas on a couple of things. My current specs are on the left. Here is roughly what you suggested, just wondering if I'm still going down the right road here. core2 duo e8500 p5q mobo 2gig DDR something (not sure what mhtz to go) I am keeping my palit 4870 512mb. I will be selling my box sans the vid card and psu What ram is best as I will be sticking with XP, also what Asus P5q mobo should I go for, best bang for the buck as I dont need sli or a hundred sata connections or 50 usb slots One more thing, what would be a decent mid tower? I've prolly got 130ish bucks for that and it needs to be well ventilated and hold that monster Palit 4870 with ease. Thanks !!!
