I would just get a different, cheaper motherboard, you can get good, fast, and reliable motherboards for less than $100, hell, less than $50 in some cases, take the $$ you save on the motherboard and get a decent video card...

I got my Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G for around $40 shipped on ebay and it hasn't given me any problems whatsoever...

the best bang for your buck video card right now would be the 4850 imo, you could pick one up for around $150...

Yeah I have a 2600PRO and I barely get 30fps average so I definitely don't think the 8400 would cut it.
