No, not really. The Barton is good, but that is WAY too MUCH for any core except the Winchester Core to handle (and only with really good cooling!) I would get the setup I showed you above, then save for a year for a new GPU, and get a new nVidia PCI Express GPU when you are ready to.

No no no. Not PCI, PCI Express. It is much faster and more powerful then AGP will ever be. AGP is dying very quickly. PCIe (PCI Express) is the new AGP.

hey dumbass, one of the parts you picked out for him was a 6200 turbocache.

edit:
merlin, OC"ing to 2.4 isn't as dangerous as you think.

The barton cores have Extreme overclocking capabilities. And you don't need like water cooling or anything. Just go out and by yourself a nice $30 aftermarket cooler.

it's funny.

Cause clearly here you state that this " It is complete idiotics to think that the turbocache, shader 3.0, and PCIe wouldn't slaughter the 5950Ultra".

ahem. And than soon after, you state, that you said the regular 6200, not the turbocache. Excuse me if i'm blind, but i clearly read turbocache in that sentence.

And i'm actually a fervent christian. Only antichrist is you for not being able to take constructive criticism and turning it around so that you look foolish.
