What do you think I should spend money on when I upgrade my computer?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am going to have some money around Christams time to do some computer upgrades. I don't know if I should go ahead and buy a new motherboard, ram, processor(Intel? or AMD?) or if I should just continue to upgrade my socket 939 with the X1900xtx and the FX-60(which I don't have the money for)? I know that 939 is going out very quickly and I feel that AM2 or even the soon to be M2 socket will be the next top of the line. What do you think I should do, I am becoming pretty good at overclocking and working with temperatures and feel that I wont need to spend an arm and a leg to buy a very good computer part but I don't want to buy a piece of junk that wont be very fast. I would like to know what you guys think. I know one thing, I'll probably spend a good $500-$700 dollars because my relatives think that I'm going to buy a $700 LCD TV but have decided to put the money else where. Thanks for any responding posts.
