I could have left out mentioning the graphics cards since switching them around would make little difference in performance. At least that is what I have been led to believe in the reviews I have read.

Contrary to popular belief, I was not intentionally trying to degrade the Radeon 9800 Pro. I have used it often and I chose to install it in the system I had been using before giving the system to my son.
Yeah i upgraded from Athlon 2400Xp to Athlon 64 3200+ and was excpecting good boost but got hardly any Halo is not friendly game more like 3dMark2003.
