Haha, well part of it was because my grandma said she hardly gets to see me and so on. Mostly sentimental, but money is money.

ok dont do anything just yet, since ur going intel seriously wait for the conroe cpu which comes out in a couple of weeks which would be far better then that pentium D, as for the vid card i would just get a 7600gt cause it will last u until the direct x10 cards come out then buy a really nice one of those

nope all cards out right now DO NOT support directx10 hence why going out and buying some big fancy card is a stupid idea

Hmm, I just read up on it, and the Conroe is going to be released on the 14th, in two days. Other than the lack of compatible motherboards, is there any reason not to wait and get a conroe instead? I hear it's only going to be like 300 dollars.

Lack of motherboards? Maybe, but the ones that are out right now are some of the best. The Intel Bad Axe, ASUS P5WDH, DFI Infinity 975x, And Gigabytes 965.
