I think for now your mobo and memory are fine. If you have the money I would go with a CPU upgrade and run the X800 if thats what you REALLY want to do.

BUT, and here's the proverbial $64 question. How long before you plan to upgrade that system?

If your going to spend that kind of money for a video card do you want it to be transferable to your next system since the next system will no doubt be using PCI-Express? $500 for a video card I want that puppy to last a year or two and I upgrade my systems more often than that.

In my humble opinion I would get a faster CPU for the system you have now and buy a Radeon 9800 Pro.

Or can you find a P4 mobo that has PCI-Express and will take all your components and still buy a PCI-Express version Radeon X800X?

The Asus P4B has an intel845 chipset. This chipset only supports 400 MHZ FSB CPU's. So the fastest processor you can buy is a 400 FSB Northwood P4. Something like this: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=19-116-152&depa=1 Asus provides a CPU Motherboard compatibility list: http://www.asus.com/support/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx

Well i just bought a x800 pro and i think theres a conflict of software or something because sometimes when im playing some games (Doom 3, Unreal tournament 2004...) when i exit out of the game my drivers are gone. i just wanted to know if anyone else is having this problem o yes and im using windows XP home edition. and if theres a patch somewhere tell me where it is.
