Hi, I'm in the same boat as you. My system is similar - AMD 64 X 2 4200, 6800 cs 512mb video card.I'm also considering a new sustem and will be interested in replys you get. What is your current power supply rated (wattage)? I've be been happy with AMD and would consider staying with them. Good luck. Howard

I think that would be good value. I realize not everyone can go to a Core i7 build (preffered) and I've heard good things about the AMD 940 II. If you could go for the i7 side of things I'd get a 920, 6GB of DDR 3 1600 ram and a good cooler so you can overclock it at least to 3.6 GHz.

Would another processor be a better value if you didn't want to overclock? Thanks Howard

Maybe, the Intel Core i7 920 is pretty good but then you need a newer motherboard, and more pricey DDR3 RAM to go with it....
