    I have always been an nVidia fan but having owned several of their cards, just to see them get outperformed so many times, the latest 5900 Ultra issue with HL2 is gonna make me switch.
    I have a 5900Ultra 256, and I am gonna give it to my nephew (he is using my olf GeForce 4Ti4600) and Im gonna get an ATI 9800XT. nVidia is kinda like Mustangs, as soon as something new is released its dated and lackluster, well maybe not as bad as Mustangs. (hate em)

    Im also switching from AMD3200XP, to an Intel Extreme Edition.....makes me all warm and fuzzy..

    Any comments, suggestions ?

    Extreme edition is kinda expensive :eek:

    might consider waiting if you are spending that money for the athlon64 fx-53

    Excellent choice. ;) I will agree with Sazar on the Athlon FX-53!

    Why do you feel you need to upgrade your CPU?? I'm sure your machine will outperform anything else on the block... I'd wait and buy a decten Athlon64 FX / mainboard combo

    I think the first thing you should shell out on is a tripod for your camera!! That's one hippy-shake photo! ;)
