Recommended Posts

Ok well, I just purchased the following at newegg.com:

 

GIGABYTE GV-NX68G256D-B Geforce 6800GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

Item #: N82E16814125218 $189.00

Track 1 DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-DR Expert Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

Item #: N82E16813136166 $189.00

Track 1 AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Manchester 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Dual Core Processor Model ADA3800BVBOX - Retail

ZALMAN CNPS9500 LED 92mm 2 Ball Blue LED Light Cooling Fan with Heatsink - Retail

I have a 420w psu (20pin) im guessing I have to upgrade to a 500w 24pin? I curently have 1GIG (2x512) Ultra pc3200 ram, upgrade that also?

 

I think that's everything, what else will I need to get/upgrade to make this work?

I highly suggest checking out the PSU thread at the top of this forum, and the Skyhawk PSU thread by me at the top also (if you are on a budget...if not, get the OCZ Powerstream 520w psu)

oh yeah and if you plan on playing Battlefield2, FEAR, Quake4, or any of the games that are coming out this year...you DEFINITELY will want to get a 2GB kit of RAM (I highly recommend OCZ PC4000EB, EL, or GX)
