Whoops, didn't take the time to look at the socket.

Anyway, I would just save the cash and upgrade the video card if I was you.

Yeah, but that's still a huge upgrade from an X800. Either way, IMHO either just upgrade your current one, or save up some more to buy a better new one. I'm sure you can persuade your mom. Clean your room without being asked or something... I don't really think a whole new system like that one is worth it right now.

6 years?? That must have been one nice rig when you bought it. A year and a half ago I was still on a 1.1 GHz Celeron with a 6600, and not even a 6600GT
