Hiya Miss H ill help best i can tho i don't know a great deal about AMD chips (im a intel kid)

To be honest i wouldn't bother with a GTX card right now its no worth the money especially as the direct X has moved on from version 10 to version 10.1 while the changes aren't all that major it dose give more control over the image etc so will lead to better over all graphics (10.1 will come with vista SP1 wich is in beta the now) the only GFX cards that will support 10.1 are those made by ATI as Nvidea have opted to not bother with 10.1 and will instead wait for DX11 (even there new 9000 series cards wont support it) how far of DX11 is tho im not sure but it cant be that far off if Nvidea are opting to skip over 10.1

its also worth mentioning you can get 2 sli capable GTO cards for under the price of a GTX card (wish i had new that when i got my non sli board)

Yea GTO and GTX and whatever other varients Nvidea dream up all normally support Sli (mine dose but my MB board dosent) but its allways a idea to double check

yea i went for a GT card in the end nice and cheep and plenty of power i think its actually in tests GT cards actualy perform better than the GTO cards which is a bit weird but there ya go

I always start at the beginning... I check out which chipsets are getting good reviews, then narrow down to which boards using that chipset are getting the best reports.

Mess makes a good point about best value for money probably currently coming from getting a pair of lower priced Nvidia 8 series cards (from memory the new 8800 GTS's are very, very good.... single slot, smaller process so less heat and power consumption) and setting them up in Sli. Most MB's around now are sli capable. Make sure you get an sli ready powersupply though (you'll need two PCI-E power connectors at least, depending on what card you go for).

I think the 8800 is still the better card superclocked or overclocked or however they want to put it is just a way of saying some one in the factory has filled with the card to boost its performance past nvidea standard speck.

The 8800 GT represents about the best bang for your buck you can get at the moment I think.

I'd strongly suggest going with a pair of those in SLI

yep i am gonner do that :) esp as i found a site that has reviewed the two.. ahd puts 8800 GT above the 9600 GT in performance.. it is however more expesnive but i think its worth it...now my probs is with regard to intel processors.. cant decide.. do i go for top of the range (isnt cheap) but in thoery extend the life of the pc.. or do i save money now.. and get a lower spec processor which could possibly need me to upgrade sooner... >.< it all comes down to money really... anyone give me any suggestions regarding Intels Dual/Qaud Cores? im very close to buying the thing ^^ just the processor and the costs that have got me wondering...

depends if you have more money than sense (like I do :D)

The sensible advice on CPU buying is to buy at the price point just before prices rise like crazy. If you look at price vs performance for cpu's it tends to look like a hockey stick lying down (fairly flat until a steep increase). The smart money buys just before that steep increase (and then overclocks if they are really up for it).

Personally I spend as much money as I can spare. As such I have a quad core already. It's worth pointing out that very few applications will use those quad cores (I've yet to see my system hit 100% CPU use... ever). I can however run 2 CoX instances simultaneously quite happily on the one workstation.

Bottom line is are you sensible/on a limited budget or a nut? :D

may i ask which quad you have? and was it around the 900/1000 mark?
for example the Intel® Core™ 2 Extreme QX9770 3.20GHz 12MB Cache 1600MHz FSB i believe is the current top of the pile... is it really worth spending that money? i should point out im looking for a system thats gonner mean i wont have to upgrade or worry about a game not playing on it for many many years to come...

I bought mine early last year. About a £610 price tag for an Intel Core 2 Quad Extreme QX6700 2.66GHz, so it's now pretty old, but still serving me well.

Only you can decide if it's worth spending the money. I have to admit, I'm not sure even I would shell out 1k on a CPU.

The problem with trying to build a futire proof PC is that even bying the newest just on the shelf kit your still a generation behind as long as intel/amd/nvidea and co can squeaze more on a sliver of silicon your gona be faceing a uphill strugle this is made all the worse by the fact that game designersare more and more going for flash graphics cool phisic effects etc etc just look at crysis as a prime example when released there wasnt a comercialy available PC that could play it on full whack even now your gona have to shell out a lot of cash to play it on full settings and weather you get a good expeirence is pretty much hit or miss

probably the best thing you can do if you want a good gaming PC is buy with a eye on future upgrading get a gfx card and prosesor that offer good bang for buck not top range but not bargin basment either best bet is look at all the required spec of the games you want to be playing (if there available) look at whats on the shelf the now and aim a little higher. then in 6 to 12 month see where it stands
