Lightbulb Need some help

I just wanted to get your guys opinion on this mobo before i bought it, so what you think? (754-pin Socket) eVGA nForce3 250 Chipset SATA RAID AGP8X w/GbLAN,USB2,&5.1Audio it will be for a mid range gaming rig with a 3200+ prossesor and a 9600xt video card, is this the right mobo for the setup?

That is good, but I suggest the 939 socket. Venice core, to be exact. What's your budget? Look at this one.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131510
but then again, you already have an agp card. It's a good mobo and will serve you well but I suggest the 939.

Well i really have no set limit just within reason, yes i already have the card so i need a mobo that has the right slots, of and btw do you think this setup will run battlefield 2 well?

AMD 3200+

Yeah, it should. But you don't have a limit, why not just get a better mobo and a better card? A single 6800 gt will serve you tremendously... but even so, the one you have or will have is pretty good.

I guess i could get a better card but idk im not a hardcore gamer and i just dont like the idea of spending 300.00 on a video card when a 9600xt does the job just fine for me, thanks for the help though!
