Just wondering if you guys think there would be huge leap in performance or even "wow this was worth the money" useing a P4 2.53 with PC2700, running a 9800 PRO and upgradeing to either a 2.8 FSB800 or 3.0 FSB 533 with some new Cosair XMS Dual Ram.

This is stricly for hardcore gaming. Dont wanna do this then have sit for a hour concentrating and then trying convince myself there is difference.

Hehe its not like I will be able to afford the new Prescott's anyway. But I guess prices will drop further. Anway I got 3 no go's so I will wait. Danke!
