    are u serious? are u one of those rich ppl that will buy the best of the best in the market? lol

    I think the X1800XT PE is the best card right now.. its right up there with the 7800GTX 512 havent seen real game performance though.. only benchmarks and so far the ATi card beats the nVidia

    as for sound.. if theres no budget, theres a lotta hype about the Creative X-Fi sound cards.. theyre like 150$ lol (ya... for a soundcard)

    u might wanna try to upgrade to atleast 1GB ram.. are u sure u have no budget? damn u jus gonna spend away and wish urself merry christmas?

    the x1800 and the 7800 are to expensive....you should try x800xt or x850xt....
