    Current Setup

    3800+ 64 S939 CPU
    550w power supply (cheap one)
    MSI K8N ULTRA BOARD
    1 GB ddr400 3200 TWINMos DDR RAM (DUAL CHANNEL)
    Geforce - 6800 (Standard) 128MB AGP
    200GB ATA 100 - DIAMOND MAXTOR
    ALL STANDARD COOLING
    WIN XP HOME

    I was thinking of the following two upgrades:

    Connect3D ATI Radeon X1900 XT 512MB GDDR3 - £205
    Gigabyte K8N Pro-Sli - £65

    Firstly, are these good choices, and will I notice much difference?
    Secondly, is there anything else which would then bottleneck the system?

    Cheers guys
