    Now for his motherboard he has 4x AGP would it be restricting for a new card to run at 4x?

    No as there's very little real difference between 4x and 8x AGP speeds.

    When I first set this system up, I was tired of bottlenecks, as is so frequent with uneven technology, so I decided to not go over my head and built the best system possible around the MB. As it happens (and I've come to realize now), I've been living with a bottleneck all along hehe.

    Regarding this system in particular, AMD_Lover was right in his analysis, no HT and the maximum will be P 2,66 Northwood.

    But coming back to the graphics issue, so you're saying that, by restricting a high-end board from 8x to 4x won't actually make much difference? I didn't know that, and it's actually terrific news...

    Nope, no difference. A few tests have shown a difference as high as about 2% in very few applications, and it's literally no difference in most games.

    Is a whole system rebuild out of the question.
    If it is out of the question you can get the new CPU and Video card, the memory should be sufficient as it is the best your motherboard can handle.

    That's what I'm saying :) After so many years of loos parts hanging around, I opted out of constantly rebuilding my system. After this CPU (and who knows, a modest video card upgrade in the future) I'll leave this one alone forever (I'm serious! If it becomes balanced, I won't touch it anymore).

    When the need arises again, Ill do another one from scratch (seems kind of epic doesn't it hehhe)
