  1. am thinking of buying below as a budget gamer.

    Am moving from a 3.0g P4 on a P4S800-MX with 256 ATI 9250, 512 vdata

    to

    INTEL PENTIUM 4 Processor 630 LGA775 3.0Ghz 64bit 2MB L2-Cache 800FSB
    *** ALBATRON PX915SLI Intel 915PL/ICH6 Chipset 2 x PCI Express 16x
    DDR400 Dual Channel USB LAN SOUND *** ALBATRON Nvidia 6600GT 128meg DDR
    Memory DVI and HDTV Out Model PC6600GT *** 1g of matched ram

    We would be happy to stay with the first cpu but i cant seem to find a
    afforable mobo with 478 , gli and dual-ram...

    ta for that pcbutts1...

    Which board would you consider?

    I cant seem to easily find the mobos with nvidia's chipsets on the
    pricelists

    hmmm, darn it...

    i was thinking the sli would give me a nicely "tuned" system either
    tho' it may have lacked outright grunt...

    I juus dont have enough readies....

    OK... I am going to find the best vid card I can for my $'s then go
    with that..

    pfft target $200au, not even worth the pain but its xercise anyway...
    .... ho

    and I have to buy another machine anyway....

    i like the 2mb cache on the P4 778 but have read it wont help gaming
    much untill the p4 4's as the 3.0 cpu is saturated anyway..

    what a nitemare....
