    so ive finally got the money to upgrade and these are the 3 things i plan on upgrading - CPU, Mainboard, Graphics card.

    im just linking to this site cos they have what i need, i havent look round for cheaper places yet, thats if there are any ?

    anyway i am thinking about getting the following.

    AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 90nm (Socket 939) - Retail (ADA3700BNBOX) (CP-121-AM) click me about halfway down

    Abit AN8 SLi Fatal1ty nForce4 SLi (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard click me

    BFG GeForce 7800 GT OC 256MB GDDR3 VIVO TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-010-BG click me 1st one

    im hoping that the CPU/board will last at least 2 years (my current P4 has lasted me over 2 with just a memory/graphics card upgrade) i all ready have 1gig of RAM at the moment which is HyperX KHX3200AK(512mb) and HyperX KHX3200AK2(512mb) in dual channel, im hoping the RAM will be fine with what i have picked for now with no need to buy any more yet ?

    any thoughts on this are welcome, would i be good to go with this or maybe thnk about something else ?

    it will mainly be used for gaming, picture and video editing.

    Love it. The BFG cards are an especially good choice. I never got the Fatality thing, I mean what gamer would use onboard sound? Would you also use 10 dollar speakers? Nope, a gamer would have at least a Sound Blaster Live or Audigy and nice surround sound, it makes the game. Might consider a better sound card and speakers.
