    Hey, I agree about going with ASUS instead of Gigabyte on the mobo but the reason that mobo is so expensive harrisdurrani, is because it comes with an Athlon 64 3000+ CPU.

    I have a Geforce 5200 FX in mmy back up machine and it runs my 2 most demanding games just fine with no OC'ing. So, I would say a Geforce 6200 should do just fine if that is all the cash you want to spend.

    The 6200 Video card is not well for future gaming and it is also very expencive 161$. The Minimum Card i sugesst u is Radeon 9800pro or for more better performance buy Geforce 6600Gt and they r about 130-165$ on newegg.com
