    ok i have currently:

    3500 amd winnie
    Asus av8 deluxe
    audigy 2 zs
    galaxy 6800 gt (agp)
    and a couple of dieing HD`s
    2gb geil value ram

    now i am considering these upgrade for my machine

    PowerColor ATI Radeon X1800 XT 512MB GDDR3 AVIVO TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express)

    Sapphire PURE Innovation Gruper Radeon Xpress 200P (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard
    Seasonic S12 500W Silent ATX2.0 Power Supply (CA-001-SS)

    Western Digital Raptor 74GB WD740GD 10,000RPM SATA 8MB Cache - OEM

    which comes to bout £640

    now im an avide gamer playin loads of bf2 so that is main reason for upgrade as i just got a new tft 20.1 widescreen and wise to run it max detail at 1680*1050. is the anything else you would think i would badly need or swap with what i have picked to get same speed but lower cost? i wish to eventually upgrade to SATA ll for storage plus i want to get a Opteron 146 and overclock it as high as possible is the mobo good enough for that?
