Hey Guys, Update is Here

Take A Look

Will the Mobo accept the new Core 2 Duo?

Should i upgrade the VGA-card to

"Asus EN7600GT Silent !! 2DHT 256Mb Tv/DVI HDTV => 214.99 "
(is it worth its price? - will it really make a difference in features and will it make newer games playable were the current solution does not?)

Can we anywhere do it cheaper, faster or better?

Let me (an my bro) know!

Asus P5N32-SLI Deluxe 199.95

latest revision of Asus P5N32-SLI works with Core 2

7600GT is quite a bit faster in than 7600GS, so it's defintely worth the extra price, running at higher resolution and detail. take a look here: http://www.ixbt.com/video2/g73-1-d.shtml#p16

But the GS i was going to buy has double the memory the GT has.

What will make the most difference? Ram vs clockspeeds?

too expensive mainboard. Ge ta cheaper one and invest in a 7900 GT . Dropped to 260 euro in germany already.

Edit: clockspeed. Amount of ram does almost nothing.

Gigabyte DS3, even if you're not overclocking, it's a nice board for the money

the memory seems a bit expensive, I think the Value series would be better

Buy the Samsung SATA DVD-RW or reuse what is in the old machine.

Use the old case with new PSU and use the old CRT/LCD mouse keyboard to save money? Otherwise the Lian Li PC7 with 2 120mm fans is my choice with a faster LCD and a better mouse (G5 or Copperhead).

512MB x1800XT, x1900XT if you intend to keep the machine for longer
