  1. time for an upgrade

    ok this is the stuff i plan on buying. I really want to keep this under 1k

    Asus A8n-SLI (not deluxe)
    Athlon 64 3000+ 939
    Corsair XMS TwinX 1GB (2x512) 3200C2PT
    1 EVGA Geforce 6600 gt (for now, gonna get another one for graduation from my father)
    2 Western Digital Caviar 80 gb SATA HDD
    OCZ Modstream 520 watt PSU
    Lian Li PC-60 Case
    NEC DVD+-RW Burner

    this is like a graduation present for myself :)

    That looks like a good rig, especially for under 1k. I don't know how much you're paying for the xms, but I'm guessing $170-190. You could save some money and get this ram instead. Ram It's cas 2-3-3-6, which is really fast(is the xms 2-2-2-5 or 2-3-3-6?), and it's only $114. That's a $70 savings.

    What I'd do:
    ---
    Asus A8n-SLI (not deluxe) --> MSI Neo4
    Athlon 64 3000+ 939 --> same
    Corsair XMS TwinX 1GB (2x512) 3200C2PT --> same or Geil
    1 EVGA Geforce 6600 gt (for now, gonna get another one for graduation from my father) --> same
    2 Western Digital Caviar 80 gb SATA HDD --> 1 x Maxtor 16mb 200gb
    OCZ Modstream 520 watt PSU --> same or higher wattage
    Lian Li PC-60 Case --> def. not this, save the money for upgrading other parts
    NEC DVD+-RW Burner --> LG 16X DVD burner
