This card is factory OCed and you can also OC it further when you get it:

BFG Tech BFGR6600GTOCX Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143026

Around $150-$200 will do you nicely for a nice video card. The BFG one above is the premier one which is why it cost so much. Factory OCed always cost more...You can always OC yourself too.

Yeah, it's good. I would preferably get the Toledo core or the Athlon 64 4400+. But that's just me. If I were to build a system right now, that is what I would get. But the 3800+ X2 will do just fine.

cool.....so rite now should I consider upgrading the Graphic card?

BTW its seems like this card( Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail) needs a DVI monitor...........will the quality still be good if i use a DVI to VGA convertor

Yes, a graphics card is a wise investment. The 6600gt is ok, but it's old. I would get a 6800 because the difference is incredible...
