    Why are you getting AGP?
    Why not SLi?
    But everything else is hella good..

    Don't get me wrong thats a good Video card..But its a lot better in the PCI-Ex16 interface..

    honestley the rsn im going with the agp is i just bought the agp card like one week ago im not a gamer really i only play one game called sims 2...so the nvidia 7800 agp 8x is dam perfect for it...if i was a big time gamer i would def go sli or w.e but its a waste of money going that way...i went to tiger direct and its costing me around 1000 didnt check shipping with that...any way hopefully tommrow this lady i know who always gets the parts from the manufacturers will get it for me at this price or cheaper...so i can have it done tommrow asap...as for the case i have a realy sexy all clear acrylic case 3 hds 250 gigs each and all the other stuff so i just need the mobo,dual core 2.6,and the ram...

    btw would i be able to run my 7800 agp 8 x in a pci express pc?if not im screwed..

    bUmp...so can i use my agp 8x on a sli mobo and i have a 550 watt aspire on my current pc for my intel p4 can i still use that also?

    You cannot use a AGP card in a PCI-Express slot or PCI slot they are way different..
    Most likely the Power Supply will work.

    The Processor has a fan and heatsink and thermal pad..But your going to have to get a PCI-Express card...
    Those one I showed you are perfect for you..

    Also make sure you use a Serial ATA 3gb/s HDD..That way you get the full speed out of your machine..
