I have a new 530W PSU. I will upgrade to an 8800GT or 9800GTX.

Current Specs:

MoBo: ASUS A8N-SLI

CPU: AMD 3500

RAM: 2 Gigs (512x4) PC2700

Ya, my rig is a Yugo.

Looks like an excellent bang for buck system Benjamin. It's been a while since I was building PCs (Athlon XP days) so am out of the loop, but reading those product overviews I'd say you made some good choices.

That seems lake a great setup for the price. I'm looking at making myself a new gaming rig and I've targeted the price at around $750 but that's for the whole rig.
