trade that board with an Nforce 2, maybe a bigger hard drive? RAM might not be enough. What's your total budget anyway, is it under $600, or exactly $550?

Yeah...I probably won't have more than 3 games on there at once, and I can always upgrade RAM and HDD later. Where could I get an Nforce2? By budget is 600 absolute max.

Okay. I answered my own question. I updated it to:
Biostar Nvidia 2 Motherboard and 256 MB PC 3200 DDR RAM

Look good?
