Also what does "Open Box" mean?
OpenBox means somebody purchased that board and returned it to newegg. It could be defected, or, it could simply lacked a driver CD or a bunch of cables. But for one reason or another, it was returned.

$319.97

You could get an 8600GT and go below your budget, but the 3850, at this price range, is well worth the money.

I would spend $100 a new CPU and the rest on a 4850.

i agree very much with this idea. then you could sell and upgrade in the future and really not be out much more money this way.

this is useful. anybody can just buy an expensive gpu that far outperforms the rest of their rig.

but as far as a new gpu goes i would get either the 8800gt, or the new HD4850. both are under $200 and will be more than adequate since you are not a big gamer.

Who said I am not a big gamer?
I just want some help with what I am asking. Its like you asking for an apple and me suggesting that 5 grapes and a plum is better.

If you read my post, I said that if you go with something more powerful than an 8800gt, your CPU would most likely bottleneck the video card. That's why I suggested you upgrade your CPU and motherboard so you can handle more powerful video cards. Get my point?

8800GT. anything else is a waste. but you should get a GTX260, i think they are $400, but true next gen instead of tech from 2006
