One last question in that regard--is the memory on the graphics card independent of the motherboard? My motherboard takes DDR2 and some of the video cards have DDR3. Can I use a DDR3 video card on a DDR2 motherboard, or will the motherboard conflict with the video card due to its having a different type of memory?
Thanks, again. Rob

The DDR3 or DDR2 or DDR5 or whatever memory type that a graphics card has, has nothing to do with your motherboard. It is just the type of memory that the card uses. The only compatibility option that you should look for is if the motherboard has a PCI express (Most likely) or an AGP slot. Then you pick up a card that fits to the motherboard regardless its memory type.

Can I ask what you plan on doing with this computer?

So far (aside from the new keyboard MIDI controller (M Audio Oxygen 88), the Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 DSP digital/audio I/O device I am using in place of the PCI sound card used on the current PC, and a new Acer 24" LCD monitor (I just had a monitor burn out in the midst of all this fun!)): Microsoft 7 Home Premium 64 bit, Intel Cor 2 Quad 3.0 GHz, ASUS PQ5 Pro Turbo, G SKill 8 GB (2 GB x 4) 1066 MHz DRAM2, Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB, OCZ 850 W power supply, Lacie 130820 TI chipset based PCI firewire card, Sapphire Radeon HD4670 video card, Cooler Master HAF 932 full tower case.
I hope you're not sorry you asked!
