it wont be cheaper man. it will be double the cost. try the 6800le agp card. but yeah, get the 939 pin, that is what i am getting. you can upgrade in the future. 754 is old, they are not making it any more.

At least you can upgrade to a FX-55 when you have the money. Cuz its socket 939 also.

the agp version of the 6800Gt is much cheaper then PCIe. i would honestly do this (follow these instructions to the letter

MOBO:

THIS IS GIGABYTES NEW NFORCE4 for only 129! PCIe!

CPU:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-463&depa=1
AMD 3500+ with NewCastle Core and 939 PIN!! Only 272!!

RAM: this stuff is the most important! This is some of the best RAM on the market, GEIL ownz!
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...144-324&depa=1

And once again, that Video Card: This is not on NEWEGG, so pls don't ask.

Ok , build this all together, and you will have a bad ass PC under whatever tower you choose. Just make sure you have at least a 475watt PS, because the 6800GT is a power hog, and the 3500+ isnt exactly power saving either....

Geil is ok. I think Corsair is better. You cant beat the prices of the Value Select ram...

Just go with a regular or GT 6800 (enthusiast/ gamer). You can also go with the 6600 GT (mid-range). Or if you're really short on moolah, you can get the 6200 with TurboCache (high-end of the low-end, LOL)also.

EDIT>>> I dont think the 6200 is out for AGP, just PCI-E, so forget that.

Are you using AGP? Cuz im sure that newegg has some 6600 GT's that are in AGP format. In fact AGP should be cheaper, since its an older technology.
