what do you plan to do with the computer? What you do can help us advise you better.
I am not an extreme gamer but I do like to play many types of games and especially the newer ones that are coming out such as NFS Underground and many of the 3d shooters. I use my pc for gaming, surfing, chatting, word processing and image editing(photoshop).

i would ditch the 5200 and get a ti4200. or if you do get the 5200, just get a 64mb one since 128's overkill for a slow card like that.

rest of it looks good. :)

he might actually achieve swapping over 64mb with the card I would think... specially with some of the 3d shooters and nfs-U..

but any of the gf4 ti's should be enough to handle your requirements as taurus said m8...

DO NOT GET THE 5200 ^_^ (horrible horrible horrible)- what's your budget on video card?

oh and try and get the pc3200 geil value ram at newegg - it'll probably be cheaper then the kingmax or whatever and peforms awesome according to reviews-

I am dealing in CAN funds and right now I am approaching $700 with this upgrade as currently listed. I DO NOT want to spend more than this on an upgrade otherwise I am better off buying a whole new setup which I currently cannot afford.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
