Ok so my brothers video card went out, i dont remember what it is, but somehow he ended up with my old video card (which was pretty good at the time), so his was crappy and i think i ended up trashing it when i got a new one. So his video card went out and he wanted mine....... so, since he was giving me a wireless router, i figured i would give him the old one, and buy a new one. I start looking around and realize that my mobo is about 2 years old, and that there isnt a great selection of agp cards and i start thinking time for an upgrade. im running a p4 3.4 chip and dont really want to drop loads of cash, so I decide to keep the chip, get a new mobo that supports ddr2 and pci-E, grab 2gb of DDR2 and a new pci-e Nvidia 8600gt and it arrives today. Total cost, about $260 from newegg. I think the mobo was $70 ish, 2gb of corsair value was 60, and the video card was like $140. Will be putting it all in tonight!!!! im like a kid in a candy store.
