You pretty much have to upgrade your mobo since it is still only ddr1, which would mean you gotta upgrade the cpu to... which isnt always a bad thing
I would say just go for it all now, since there is always something new coming out just around the corner.. (gtx280.. then the new Intel CPU platform... ATI 4870... then what... it never ends)

Yeah I just added that one, I read up on it and its a better OC'er than I thought. lol yeah that ram defiently needs to be upgraded, gotta get some nice Crucial Tracers in there.Edited by xlastshotx - 6/10/08 at 4:54pm
