    Not a bad setup Kat. I'm assuming your 3.0 processor has the 800MHz FSB correct?

    BIOS: AMI Version 08.00.10
    Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz (2 CPUs) - This is according to DirectX, technically only 1 CPU is installed.
    Memory: 512MB PC2700(Not quite as good as you)
    GPU: nVidia GeForce 6800
    Bus Type: AGP 8X
    Video Card Memory: 128MB DDR
    Core Clock: 350MHz
    Memory Clock: 700MHz
    RAMDACs: Dual 400MHz
    Memory Bandwidth: 22.4GB/sec.
    Manufacturer: BFG Tech

    I'm close to you on a couple of the items anyway. But I will always stand by my nVidia. had too many problems with ATI personally.

    Personally I'll take my ATI X800 XT PE over any nvidia card... not that im some lame fan boy looking to start a flame thread, but this card just plain kicks ****. If you got the money, I definetely recommend this piece.

    Might as well list the rest of my specs while im here...

    Asus K8N-E Deluxe
    AMD 64 3500+
    1 gig pc3500 ddr
    ati x800 xtpe
    sb audigy 2 zs

    edit: (I cant believe they censor a.r.s.e)

    That's cool I can respect that. In the past I've just run into too many issues with ATI not being compatible with some types of motherboards without jumping through hoops and then only have it work here and there, where nVidia has worked me for everytime.

    At one point in time, I would've continued to say ATI all the way as they were one of my first big video card purchases. The ATI All-In-Wonder Pro card back in the mid to late 90's.

    Sadly my PC is almost two years old , she's a good one though, the first I ever built for myself.

    Geebus after doing that I realized that my primary hard drive is 37GB full and my secondary hard drive is 120GB full! Yikes!

    Sounds like it's time to get a bigger hard drive. If your motherboard can handle it, pick up a 250GB or 300GB SATA 150 drive. Access times are much improved on those compared to ATA 66/100.

    Gah I know! I already have two hard drives though! And the smaller of my two has my OS and all my games....it'd be a big pain in the behind to reload all of that!
