id say mobo, graphics card, cooling in that order. what you really should buy depends on budget and needs. 9800pro is still fine if you dont play any of the latest games at high levels. oh and a soundcard may be a cheap investment.

YJust the system i have now is acting funny, and i can't figure out why, My 9800 pro isn't that old at all, and when i play wow now since i changed form my old board to this intel one, every like 14 mins everything on the screen flickers, like the card is getting hot or something. I have ram sinks on it, and waiting for the new hs and fan to arrive, i am hoping that will fix it. also i htink my cpu runs hotter on this board than it did on my other, and no matter what i do i can not get it to stay low under load. when i am just browsing the net it stays around 43-45c, but when running wow it gets up to like 62c sometimes., my ambient is usally low, staying between 33c-38c, My remote temp, (Which i have no clue what that is) is usally around 34c but the other night it was 52c.

So i am hoping that this hs and fan will fix my flicker problem, though i still want a new mobo.... using this intel sure makes me miss my old Gigabyte board.. /cry
