Would i be better off going with a 939 or intel cpu + mobo with a pci express graphics? is the 6800 or x800 better? (i am an amd and ati guy B) )

He isn't selling it Alvino, calm down. Yes, good upgrade except for ONE thing. I would NOT get the 3400+, I would get what I have, the 939Pin 3500+ Winchester core. It is based on the SOI (Silicon on Interconnect) technology with 90 nanometer, so you can overclock it like 400-500MHz with only a 2-3 degree Celcius increase!
