    hi , i'm planning to upgrade my computer
    its current configuration is :
    intel pentium 4 2ghz (notOC)
    ASUS P4S-333 VM motherboard
    512mb ddr333 ram
    80gb 7200 rpm hdd
    the mobo has an AGP 4x slot and i have ASUS GE-FORCE 4 64MB on it

    first plz tell if i can update my existing system

    i want to upgrade it to be able to install 6600gt on it
    either somebody suggest a component upgrade or one of the upgrades from below:

    1-
    AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 939
    ASUS A8N-E mobo
    1 gb DDR ram 400 mhz
    ge force 6600gt 128mb PCIE

    2-
    INTEL PENTIUM-D 2.66
    2mb cache
    intel original motherboard (comes along with it as a combo)
    1 gb ram DDR2 ram
    ge force 6600gt 128mb PCIE

    my use would be basically playing games
    and try to keep the price low , but i'm not on a tight budget , just would like to save money .
