Default Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok, as you can tell by the title im pretty excited!!! i just won an nvidia 6800 ultra 256mb, on ebay for 82bucks!!! im super excited! my abit motherboard comes in tomorrow and my amd athlon 2800 will come in later this week! as well as 256ram! my system will be as follows...

Coolmax 500watt psu
768mb pc3200 ddr
Nvidia 6800ultra 256mb agp8x
ABIT KV8 MAX3 754 amd

how do you think this sucker will perform? ill have over a gig of ram soon, but this is by far the best pc ive ever had, my best graphics right now is an x300 so this 6800ultra will blow that thing out of the water, anyway just wanted to see what you guys thought! thanks!

It's alright. Your processor is skt. 754, why not save up and get something better?

The cards are great, obviously there are better tho. Ive got a 6800 aswell (see my sig). It runs vista aero with no problems. Just like compman said, your running socket 754, my board is 939, so there will be some performance difference.

It will be ok, but nothing compared to todays systems. But as long as it gets the jobs done, then thats all that matters.

the 6800 ultra will be great. I have a 6800GT and it's doing pretty well.
