    Lookin' for a new PC under $1200

    Mainly for gaming, but I'm not going into the DX10 business.
    And I plan on getting good cooling for my GPU.

    It's a good time to upgrade after the april price drops but if the rumor is right you might want to hold off for a few months. There's another big cut coming in july.

    Um you realize you picked DDR memory for a DDR2 board? You also picked an AMD CPU to stick in a LGA775 socket. No offense but I suggest doing a little bit more reading before you undergo this project.

    I also agree with above. Try this. Pick what's most important to you in a system. For example, the processor. Then pick the mobo that fits your processor. Then the memory, so on and on...

    CPU: Intel C2D E6420
    Mobo: Asus P5B Deluxe
    RAM: 2GB Crucial Ballistix PC2-8500

    What GPU would I be best off with? *NOT DX10* (512 MB)

    Regardless the 2900XT and 8800's still kick butt in anything.
    Get a good PSU, Corsair 520 or something along the lines.

    Why not DX10? The 8800 GTS is the best bang-for-your-buck card available, whether you play DX10 games or not.

    Heh that is a little bit more like it.

    As per the previous two posters, why not DX10? If you are a gamer you should definitely pick up a DX10 card if you want a gaming computer with any kind of future proofing. The 320MB 8800GTS is pretty darn cheap right now and would be a much better buy than a 7950, especially for a gamer like yourself.
