    Ive had a big problem with my old rig and i dont know what it could be and tbh i really want to upgrade,so this is a good excuse to do so.
    I had a quick look on ocuk and this is what i have come up with:

    AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice
    Abit AN8 SLi nForce4
    Hitachi Deskstar 80GB
    Thermaltake purepower TWV 430W PSU
    and a Enermax CS-527 case

    and im gonna use my old parts too which are:

    Sapphire ATI Radeon 9600
    and 512mb of cheapish ram,which i was saving to up grade to 2gig but now my pc is broke im gonna upgrade the above and save again to upgrade the ram some time soon.

    So what do u think would everything work good together ?
    As im not the best person at this kind of thing.
    thanks

    First thing that springs to mind is your old graphics card won't fit on the new motherboard... with the graphics card being AGP and the motherboard being PCI-E.

    That motherboard is a PCI-E board, your graphics card will be AGP, so you will have to get a new graphics card im afraid. You shouldnt have to spend to much more to get a card of similar performance. Plus you can always sell your old one to help pay for a new one.

    or he could just change mobos to the "ASRock 939Dual-SATA2"

    (http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/09/16/asrock_939dual/) which has agp and you could later upgrade to the pci-e ???? (although am not sure its available here yet =S ) some one will have to use the google machine
