    Im looking into a video card now.

    I was going to get a Regular instead of DELUXE...Should I get deluxe?

    And yea, I was going to overclock the system. You have similar specs, how does your system run?

    if your overclocking you'll want pc3200 then. it'll allow that barton to run a 400fsb which is an overclock from the 333.

    the Abit NF7-S seems to be a friendlier board too.

    Yea, get PC3200 or it will be a bottleneck. I keep hearing good things about corsair memory. I have the Asus and I love it, tho the last three MOBOs I owned were Asus. The Delux has good onboard sound, and the chipset is the bomb. I don't know jack about abit except that it has alot of followers here on the forums, just like Asus. LoL
