    I've got £300 to spend on a decent Mobo and GFX card, but cant decide on which one. I want somthing that is stable out of the box and doesn't keep falling over.

    At the moment My specs are XP64 3200 Winchester, MSi KT8 neo 2 Platinum Mobo, 1 GB (2x512) Pc4000 ultra platinum ram and a 9800 pro.

    I've asked in the GFx card forums about which card to buy and the X850xt seems to be the one of choice. Any input would be welcome.

    If you've got £300, I'd suggest a 7800GT rather than the X850xt. As for the mobo, something by Asus should do well, e.g. the A8N-E. The two together should be around £280 :D
