    512MB RAM SAMSUNG DDR 333 MHz (upgrading to 1gig)

    ATI 9600tx (upgrading to 6600gt)




    but for the same price as upgrading i can sell mine and get this pc


    AMD64 Athlon 3700+ 1Mb Cache CPU
    1,024MB 400mhz PC3200 DDR Memory
    200GB Maxtor S-ATA 150 7,200RPM HDD

    I'd go for the a64 set up personally. Which i did a few months back and haven't looked back:D
    If your system is geared towards games (like mine) then AMD is the way to go imo.

    I dont know much about cpus and motherboards from what I can find everybody says 939 is better than 754 because its better for upgrading (which I wont do) and dual channel memory is better on 939 but I think my current cpu is 478 so the 754 will be better is this right?

    I will mainly use it to play CS Source HL2 BF2 and any new games.
