I was thinking of getting AMD Athlon 64 3000+ but, I've heard reviews that in order to run the 7900GT with everything enabled, I would need to overclock it like a mofo.
Just wondering, why ae buying a PCIe card for an AGP motherboard? Why dont you get the motherboard and processor done first with an inexpensive PCIe GPU. Then save up for more RAM and a new GPU. By that time the 7900s will maybe be cheaper and maybe the DX10 cards will be out. Here is a suggestion for you:

MSI K8N SLi-F $102.00

AMD 3200+ $159
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103535

eVGA 6800 256MB $129.00 ($99.00 after rebate)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130263

Save some milk money and you will have it. $390.00 plus shipping. You will be way better off then you are now and do not waste money on something you can not use.

The 7900gt is better then the 7800gtx.

Now the bad news with your cpu, mobo and ram you will get alot of bottle Necking, Thus hindering the performance of the New GFX card.

Your Better off upgrading your Mobo,CPU and Ram.

heh,

um that exactly what i've been asking about. (not trying to rude or anything)

I PLAN on upgrading I was simply asking what you guys think I should get with my graphics card, now I looked a little further into it and found a really nice ASUS mobo and its only $80:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131569

But what im also wondering is if i get this type of of Graphiucs card and motherboard, what AMD Processor should i get (with out having to manually over clock it, I might do OC later tho) so that my computer will be able to keep up with everything?

Had that board and really liked it. Hit 3.0GHz with my 3700 on it. I would say at least this:

I know you will be saving for it so it may not hurt to save a little longer and maybe get this:

Either one will do you just fine.
