okay. thanks. what would u recommend that i use for my pc:

athlonXP(socketA) 2100+ (1.7ghz)
2 x 256mb pc2100
80gb hdd - 66mbps, 5400rpm
currently onboard geforce2 32mb graphics.


edit--

it has an agp4x slot available.
it is not custom built, it's compaq, so its not oc'd

also, can i get a pci hdd controller? maybe one that supports 133mbps. cuz i have a 100gb hdd that's 7200rpm that supports 133mbps. i mean, can pci handle that?
