Good i was looking for a forum like this

ok so im looking for a new rig i already have a graphics card from my old rig which is the nVidia geforce 8500 gt (compatible with DirectX 10)

Mmm well I am not sure what to reccomend, but your Graphics card looks like it will be ok Bobby. I personally prefer XP, but then havent tried vista yet, but have not heard many good reports on it. Very Happy

well i was thinking along the lines of this:

nVidia geforce 8500 gt
3 gig ram (should run ofp fine) probs kingston
intel proccessor (quad)
sound card im not sure about

but then i still need to think of a good cooling case cos 3 gig ram will get quite hot
and still need a good heatsink
and power input

so many desicions and so little time

oh btw Vista can be quite good for gaming just that vista comes will alot of resource hogging programs when those get disabled then its as good or better then xp...just needs tweaking
