I am planning to build a new system using the following parts: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane OC Biostar T-Force 550 Motherboard Corsair XMS2 2GB DDR2-800 (1GB x2) Seagate Barracuda SATA-2 320GB HDD Lite-On DVD-RW Drive 16X Emprex(Sony) DVD-RW Drive 18X OCZ GameXStream 700W PSU And either an eVGA e-GeForce 7900 GS 256MB or 8800 GTS 320MB I will be using Windows XP PRO SP2. I want the 8800 because of DirectX 10. But I'm going to upgrade to Vista for about a year and a half which makes it pointless to have a DX10 card if I'm not going to have DX10 on the PC anyway. Another reason being the fact that there are only 3 DX10 cards anyway so why would I go for one if the choice will be expanded soon, by nVIDIA and ATi. And yes I'm a nVIDIA fanboy. But if an ATi card kills an nVIDIA card I'll consider it. P.S. This will be a mid-range gaming computer with 19" LCD moniter. I'll be playing a lot of the new FPS games. Most of which I already have but just look "OK" on my current PC. EDIT: My budget is under $1000. So removing the 8800 saves money. Plus I look forward to rebates and my nest egg.
