AMD Athlon 64 3200+
Asus A8N SLI Deluxe NVIDIA Socket 939 Motherboard
Ultra 1024MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz Memory (2 1 Gig sticks)
eVGA GeForce 7600 GT CO SuperClocked
Maxtor / DiamondMax 10 / 300GB / 7200 / 16MB / SATA-150 / Hard Drive

How does this look guys? Will the CPU bottleneck the video card? Any other suggestions or comments would help too.

Can I go for 3 gigz memory or will it mess up in windows xp (32 bit)? What if I went for 64 bit?

Eh, its not really worth it go with 3 gigs unless you have some specific use for it.

Itd probably cause more problems and limit system performance because its an odd configuration.

What about the CPU. Will its lower speed limit the video card. Will the CPU limit the video card if i get a better one like the 7900?
