    Agp 8x is DEAD now. No point buying upgrading for it.
    There is no way you will see the release of a DX10 card on the agp platform.

    Dont spurge good ol' money going for absolutely brand new hardware;
    1> I suggest get a spanking new Mobo which supports PCI-e 16x and a good graphic card. [If you can wait, get a new DX10 card] if you want a temporary solution now get a 6600 based card.

    2> You dont HAVE TO upgrade you processor as of now [will last you another product cycly atleast, mabe even two if you overclock].
    But you may think of installing sumthing that clocks atleast 2.5ghz [single core] in the very near future [as games demand more processing power]

    Ram upgradation will definately help but it is not mandatory to play the newest games. Its fine.


    Get a new Mobo Today and a good graphic card when DX10 is realeased. Get a 6600 based temoporary solution for now.

    thats the thing i want to know. which mobo i will buy for it?:confused:
    because i will upgrade my machine after DX10 is released. thinking of buying a core duo processore e6400 and a proper mobo. maybe i will wait another 4-6 months for dx10 market to stabilise and then upgrade my gfx card and other ram. can u also suggest me whether there is exchange rate of my mobo and RAM for the new one?
