ok so i had this pc for a long, long while. and its definatly time to change it, my hdr and bloom effects dont even work. 2.8 ghz 512 mb of ram Ge force fx 5600 im for sure getting another 512 mb of ram, so i can have a gig. but i wanted to buy a new video card, iv been thinking about the ge force 7800 ( i know there is many versions, i have no idea which one ) . definatly not in sli mode, il never be bale to afford 2 cards. i could also get a ge force 6800, or radeon 9800. i dont know much about pcs, but right now i have 600$ cnd dollars. what i ant to be able to play on HIGH settings: stalker cod 2 source games with hdr and bloom effects battlefield 2 ( lags too much the demo ) and even ut2007 ( this one is important, im waiting for it ) id love to hear ur suggestions, links, anything. thanks guys.

Hmm, I agree with the CPU and mobo choices Stalker, but I think a better card might be required. Something along the lines of a 6800gt or ultra? Or maybe even a 7800gtx. It would be a lot more expensive I know, but it'd last.

true, but after those CPU and mobo, it will be hard to stay in his budget with at 7800

i dont really understand, the cpu u linked too is 1 ghz isnt it? mine is 2.8, and 1 ghz is nothing. i know this cant be right, and im understanding something wrong, but i cant figure it out :( is this motherboard u linked too compatible with the 6800 and the 7800s? i will probably need to buy new fans and wattage wont i :( i think il be saving up for the 7800, maybe get a job. so before i get a motherboard like that, i will need to make sure its compatibly with with the 7800s. btw is ordering pieces online a reliable thing to do? do u save that way? thnx for the help.

I agree with stalkers choices, except the video card. Try to get a 6800GT at least.

Read some of the specs for the processor, as well as the comments. Trust me, none of us would refer you to a worse processor than you already had.

And yes that motherboard is compatible with the 7800s, any motherboard with PCI Express should be. Also if you're getting a 7800gtx, you have to make sure you have at least a 400watt power supply.
