You posted this earlier:
oh and one more thing as you all know the my HD3850 i have 6pin pci e connectors connected to card, and i know the all jumpers what they doo on mobos and it may bee imbaressing i also have on my HD 3850 tow Jumpers see on pic :

http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/9100/powercoloramdatihd38505.jpg
To which I answered:
You must not change the jumpers on a graphics card, unless it's clearly stated on it's manual that such procedure is needed to activate a certain function/feature or it is labeled on the card that said jumper is there to switch between NSTC and PAL display modes do the S-Video output.
That should clear it.
To make it final, No, I do not believe those jumpers should be removed or changed form their original position.

Also, all those findings are fine and all but seriously:

nForce 3! Old school baby! I will NEVER forget my DFI LanParty nForce 4 - the sweetest MB i ever had.

Seriously, if i were you, i would drop the motherboard and processor to the trash bin. HD3850 is more than enough to play any modern DX10 game on 1280x960 resolution, medium settings, with no AA, but for the cheapest motherboard + CPU combo - go and buy yourself a used P35 motherboard and Core 2 Duo or a new H61 motherboad with Pentium Dual core CPU.

I'm pretty sure he was thinking about buying a prebuilt computer which he said on the first page and second page.

I thought someone had been doing some thread necromancy from the thread title until I saw the thread date.

It's actually impressive to see one of these 754skt AMDs actually running.
Most the ones I have come across have been dying or dead.

For current days gaming as probably mentioned, a 775skt CPU is your best bet with the mentioned AsRock motherboard to reduce replacing hardware.

I would try and protect the pins in the cpu socket if I were you. Hopefully it had a socket cover that came with the board. If it did keep it on the socket until you get your cpu. It should be a nice upgrade from what you had before!

Once DX11 becomes the de facto standard with W8 I can see DX9/10 not being supported anymore. Anyway, there's countless of DX9/10 games that he can play.

I don't think I've seen a DX11 only game yet, all have DX9 as a fallback, AFAIK.

Some people like to state someone has an old PC with no real valuable input to the rest of the post.
Geeks get butt hurt, being told their PC is little and weak.
It can be the equivalent of saying a mans penis is small.

Anyway.
I think despite a system being crappy or not, the most important part is being happy with it.
The buzz from getting it upgraded and building it.
Newly acquired hardware no matter how old it is.
Getting it running and seeing it do better than what it was before.

Don't know what CPU is going to be thrown into that thing, but a Q6600 should drop in.

His friend is giving him an E4500 and he had the 3850 and RAM, all he needed was the mobo which he has bought, as pictured.

Some people like to state someone has an old PC with no real valuable input to the rest of the post.
Geeks get butt hurt, being told their PC is little and weak.
It can be the equivalent of saying a mans penis is small.

Anyway.
I think despite a system being crappy or not, the most important part is being happy with it.
The buzz from getting it upgraded and building it.
Newly acquired hardware no matter how old it is.
Getting it running and seeing it do better than what it was before.

Don't know what CPU is going to be thrown into that thing, but a Q6600 should drop in.
yes but the problem lays in that a lot of people do attempt 'upgrades' to ancient hardware and don't really understand what they are doing is a waste of time and then expect to be-able to play lastest and greatest game or ultra high bitrate movies and then they get upset when there "investment" falls flat on its face
it has nothing todo with epeen or this machine is better then that one
so long as you don't expect more then the hardware is capable of giving what ever works for you works but I do tend to take issue when people do things and then come back later complaining of low frame rates or bad performance .. and all I can tell them is sorry you wasted your money
I am of the school of: stop gap upgrade are a waste of time money and energy .. and I am by no means rich ....

^^ How about does not have the money to invest in a significant upgrade?
Being poor?

This stems back to the people who go.
Get a whole new PC and leave the thread knowing that the most likely reasoning for the small upgraded is due to being poor.

There has been no mention of the OP stating he would blame it all on us if his machine does not perform to what he hopes it to so why would you assume it would fall back on us?

We already told him to replace the 6770 with an 6850/70. The 775/AGP rig is something build with leftovers that he's going to give away.

simple don't upgrade at all
been there done that I ran with a GHz Pentium 4 until late 2008 I could have upgraded with more ram or a faster gpu but that would have been a waste of time and i knew it how ever temping it was to spend 80 bucks on a 7800GT or a faster ram I knew in the end it would never help much .. so saved .. and I waited ..

hypothetical situation
I have a AMD 5200+ with 2GB of DDR 667 paired with a ATI 4850..
the options to upgrade that are pretty good most am2 boards support a Phenom II's and I do have one pcie x16
most boards of that era are limited to a 95wat TDP for phenom II's
so the options to upgrade are
drop in a ATI 6770 +120.00
and change the cpu out to a AMD Althalon II x4 100.00
upgrade to 4GB DRR2 +60.00 now I have a pc that could play battle field 3 and acceptable framerates
cost 335.00 usd
for a little over 100 dollars more I could build a brand new pc that would outperform the upgraded one by several factors of magnitude
for example

antec 520wat psu +55.00
4GB DDR3 1600 + 40.00
Amd Pheome II X4 BE 130.00
socket AM3+ motherboard 75.00
ATI 6850 150.00
160GB hdd +70.00
Optical drive and misc parts +35
cheap case +25
450USD
this estimate is probably a bit on the high side
and it would ABSOLUTELY stomp the old rig
so say the I decide to upgrade my current build and save 115 bucks a well Iv breathed another year or so if life into it so what ... do I repeat the same process the following year ? and waste another 200 or 300 bucks ?
