Hi folks,
got myself a medion tower it has:
q6600 cpu
3 gb (2 x 1gb, 2 x 512mb) ram
400w psu
2 x 500 gb wd Hdds
windows 7 32 bit
ms 7502 ver 1.2 mobo
nvidia geforce 8600 gt connected to ms 4073 scart output

what i want to do is combine my current pc with it so id have

q9400 cpu
6 gb (2 x 2 gb hyper x fury blu, and use the 2 x 1 gb currently in it)
600w Alpine blue cool psu
2 x 500gb WD Hdds
windows 7 32 bit ( which i installed anyway coz i dont like vista)

however i am now stuck with the graphics card,
should i use the 8600 gt - 512mb and keep the ms 4073 connected
or use a gtx 470 - 1gb
or use gt 730 - 2 gb

Im thinking the gt 730 due to 2 gb, but then i lose the ms 4073....

Is it that important to keep these tho or should i just use my gt 730???

if there is any other graphics card i can get that will provide the performance and still keep the ms 4073 please let me know as i have only seen 512 and 286 mb..

Thanks folks

2nd question could i use my xeon x5460 in this mobo and would it give me a good performance boost??

what do you think would be the best build with what i have available?

Best combo is GTX 470 and Intel core 2 quad q9400.
