I agree, there's nothing wrong with the processor, but the fact is, fast graphics cards these days use PCI Express, and this computer doesn't have that, so an upgrade is needed :D

shoony, PCI Express is the latest technology, but nothing has been made to use everything it has to offer...
AGP 8x is still the better option for now, why sell a perfectly good (and damn fast) machine, just cause it doesnt have PCI Express...

Tell that to my 256mb ATi 9800XT which is over two years old and keeps up with enough of the new cards and runs smooth as silk at high detail in any game I please.

Because, i want to get a GeForce 7800, which only come in PCI-express. It opens up the door for SLi operation, and anyway, what are you talking about? ATI are the most s**t cards ever, and here is proof... Modern game, and ATI chokes terribly.

I'm aware that AGP hasn't even reached his potential yet, but plain fact is that it's being phased out, and all the new cards only come in PCIe. If i could get a 7800GTX in AGP, trust me, i would. Also, a good reason to sell this now is because it's still quite new, very fast, and i'll get a decent amount for it, whereas if i wait, computer prices drop quicker than a baby off a cliff. Surely there's someone out there who wants to pay this meager price for such a quick machine?

Thats all well and good shoony, but I would definitely take those figures with a grain of salt. Firstly.....nvidia is a partner in the game and with all the partnering nowadays some of the performance jumps the partnered company get on their cards is s**t.

Secondly.....who the f**k runs their games at 2048x1536?

i hope you realise to make use of the sli technology you need two of those 7800 to get that kind of benchmark, you would be looking a 2 grand just for video cards waste of cash IMO
