Ok I'm getting a few parts to replace what I have right now in an older machine I use for when friends are over ect. Right now its a Pentium III 933, GeForce2 MX200, and 160mb of ram.

What I'm getting

Athlon 64 3200 - $50
Solteck K8T800-939 -$35
ATI Radeon 9700Pro - $45 (already paid for)
1gb DDR400 2x512mb 2x2x3x5 $50

I have an Antec Smartpower 350 I will be adding in also to replace the generic 300W.

9700 Pro, wow, it's cool to see that a few of them haven't been burnt up, softmodded, or sent back to ATI/Sapphire. :) That's a pretty damn good card, it sure gave nv a hard time back in the day... OC'ed it prolly should blow away any modern x600 and maybe touch toes with some x1600 benchies...

The rest of your rig looks pretty nice, too.

Awesome upgrade for the price. I am running on a AMD 3200 right now and it is great. Have fun!
