In a few months, M2 socket, another new motherboard and DDR2
When I built a 386 for my first kid going to College in 1992, I said to her "use the computer and never let the computer to use you", for years later the very same computer helped her graduated with two engineering degrees plus one invention. Your intelligency and knowledge level are not limited by a little order and a bit slower computer.
If you have two Intel P4 >3.5 GHz speed, I don't see any need to upgrade .... perhaps getting a newer graphic card.
However, frequent upgrade is a common "ITCH", there is no logic when you see a woman buying/owning 500 pairs of shoes" as to a guy owning several PC or changing Proc or Graphic cards on a quarterly basis. What you "like" it and "love" it, it makes you happy.
My P4s either Prescott or Northwood HT will half the time in DVD ripping than A64 @2.7GHz. I certainly could rip DVD in other 4 P4s and game with A64. That's because I am crazy.

I read the article that 187(V)URD@ suggested. I'm getting a raise next month & I'm thinking of building a new AMD machine. It really looks like the way to go.
This is what I am considering
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ CPU (Venice)
Asus A8N-SLI nForce4 or Gigabyte GA-K8N-SLI nForce4 board
G.skill or Pariot or OCZ DDR mem
I might be able to get two Chaintech 6600GT 128MB SLI video cards for $100 each. Can the pipelines be opened on the 6600GT to bump it up to a 6800GT?

I say slap a 7800GT or one of the new 512MB GTX coming soon in there and you will notice a serious increase for games.
changing the motherboard and CPU is stupid
