    Ok...i think i got this right. The 9500 is based on the 9600 engine and the 9600 is based on the 9800 engine, right?

    See i got the Sapphire 9500 PRO

    Ok men after much reading etc this is my current preferences [keeping in mind my budget.]:thumbs do

    MOB-8RDA+ Crush18D,Soc-A,3DDR400,FSB333, AGP8,6CH,ATA133,6USB2,LAN,1394

    ATHLON AMD K7-XP2600+ CPU WITH FAN

    512M DDR PC2700 333Mhz Kingston (CL 2.5)

    SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON 9500PRO 128MB DDR TVODVI

    That comes to $859.00. That is using suppliers within 5 kilometres from home. Time is more important to me. I know I could save a few bucks here and there but I could get all this in 20 minutes.

    I have just enuff left over for a 350W P/S [will this be enuff??] and a few fans, to come in at around the grand.
    Any thoughts [keep in mind I'm just an average user and not competant enuff to over clock]

    well like i said before, you might want to get 2 sticks of ram so you can take advantage of dual channel ram that the Nforce2 can use.

    350W is fine, i'm running an 8rda+, axp 2600+, 512mb corsair xms2700, 1x 40gb seagate and 2x 80gb wd hard drives, a gf4 and a liteon burner all from a 300W enermax PSU and i'm not having any problems at all

    I should be able to "sneak" anotha stick of 512 in there

    reason I asked about the P/S apparantly the SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON 9500PRO draws a fair bit, too much for the slot so a pin is provided to plug into the Mobo as well:wow:
