Hi guys

I play eve online, watch movies, run dreamweaver, photoshop and anything i can on my PC. Not at once mind u.

Its time for an upgrade and this is my choice, i wanna know what u think:
motherboard , cpu , ram , http://cgi.ebay.ie/NVidia-GeForce-8800GT-5...1QQcmdZViewItem , PSU
and im using my current hard drives, seagate 250Gb sata x2 hehe.

My current system i also built myself, bout 3 years back, 1 problem i did have was. After buying everything, i assemlbed the whole thing, and then it wouldnt work, main prob was the board or whatever, didnt pick up my HD with OS(xp sp2), sata drives that is. I had to take it in to a pc repair shop and they charged me 2 much i think.

Have the new m/boards evolved beyond that point and when i do assemble this new one it will work/pick up my Hd 1st try??

If you have suggestions regarding this setup, please link what u think is better, i aint got 2 much mony 2 spend on this so keep that in mind.

cheers

I have to concur with Dachew's feelings about ebay, even if the person guarantees the product you may have a very hard time getting you money back if it shows up DOA. To top this off their "deals" are that hot by comparison to what you can purchase form online sites like Newegg and Tiger Direct. I have had nothing but good experiences with Newegg. My NEC 4550A was having trouble a few days before the warranty was to run out, this happened to be over the Thanksgiving weekend. Newegg didn't have a problem with the fact that the warranty had technically run out, they sent the RMA number to me and replaced the drive.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

My friends over at the Imgburn forum do a lot of their shopping at dab's and svp

http://www.dabs.com/ProductView.aspx?Quick...5&InMerch=1

here's some ram of the same specs from probably the best known manufacturer in the world

of course for such fast ram with high voltage specs it's safer to get a compatible motherboard

If you dont want to spend a lot on a gfx card then look at the 8800GS its a lil more then an 8600gt but extremely better.
