posting from your phone or something revs? ;p

get one of the 8800 cards like the GT or something..between $200 and $300.

definitely do something about that video card. If an 8600GT is all you're going to get you might as well go with a cheap AMD64 set up.

I'd recommend a radeon 3850 if you're trying to keep it cheap. You can get a 256Mb model for like $150 and it'll be significantly faster than the 8600GT or GTS.

I recommend a 512Mb model though, and those are around $200.

i guess i will go with 8800Gt that should be better and there is one final thing might sound odd but whenever i get myself a new pc it always tends to get stuck i suppose it is because of the way i use it can anyone here suggest me ways as for better maintainance (i am sorry its off topic)

In my opinion there aren't enough reasons to go with a quad core yet, especially if you're on a budget.

Go with a dual for now and overclock it. You'll get more performance for less money.

I'd recommend a P35 chipset board too. Just in case you decide to get one of the new quad cores next year, as they aren't guaranteed to be compatible with the 965 chipset.

Dual Core is the best for now
