ok I know this is an old thread but I dont feel like starting a new one.
Anyways, I was looking at video cards on newegg and I saw a deal were if you buy a eVGA 7800GT you get a free eVGA Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI motherboard. I think I might buy this and then try and get my mom to buy me a cheap processor for now like a amd athlon 3200+ venice. I think that sounds like a good idea
