Don't mean to be an ass, but I was wondering: Wouldn't it be cheaper to simply go with a good system that has integrated an integrated GPU? It's not like they are much worse than all those 64bit bandwidth GPUs you have there + you would have something more than a p3.

Really don't want to be correcting your way of using your PC; just wondering why you are still on a P3 and have a shitload of low-budget 3d-cards which summed up would make a far more equal to a more powerful system with a decent GPU-Solution. ^^'

LOL i don't use Integrated anymore, i stop doing that when i knew what a GPU was, this was back in late 2005 btw. Yes i didn't know what a graphic card was until mid to late 2005 :laugh:

It's not like they are much worse than all those 64bit bandwidth GPUs you have there + you would have something more than a p3.
I plan to buy a secondary computer in the future, so i will have a more powerful rig soon enough.

just wondering why you are still on a P3
Because my pentium III is awesome and its been working since 2000, and it plays my games just fine. Its my main computer, so i am gaming in 2009 on a P3/600mhz/90watts, baby :rockout:
