http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814141033 this video card is a 6 series, but it has 512MB ram and 256-bit interface at about the same price

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817194002 this is a very good PSU with lots of good stuff such as dual 12V and stuff for about the same price

now that i look at ur video card again, it's kinda a hard desision on which 2 get. i've always known that 256-bit interface is alot better than 128, but the 7 series is better and it has higher clocks...u might want to get more opinions on the video cards first.

Alright, I'll try to get more opinions on the Video Card. Once again, thanks for your help!

So, I still need to find out which Video Card is superior, and if everything is compatible, also if the motherboard is compatible with an IDE Hard Drive.

yea, my friend has a 7600GT but i can't tell you if it's better than mine or not mainly because

1. he's got SLi
2. He's got a dual core processor(single core for me)
3. 2 gigs of ram (compared to 1 gig for me)

I intend to have 2 gigs of ram, maybe more later, and I'll probably upgrade to SLi at some point if possible.

What is the difference, between the other bit, and the 256-bit?
