Hi all u ppl that know much more about pc`s than me :)
Buying a new rig for age of conan, but its been a while since i bought and my pc knowledge is outdated! :p
So ive pieced togehter a pc from the site "".
My main concern is buying something i really dont need or something that will only create bottlenecks/unstability etc.
Im aware that vista 32 bit wont use all 4 gb of ram. Im really unsure about SLI compared to single card, is it worth the buck??

Just quickly cos its late

it seems like a nice system, however i'm not sure you need to go for 2 cards!!

have a look at this one for example (save yourself £200)($400)??

watch your PSU aswell i would go for something with a little more ooomph running a system like that so your a little more future proof for more Harddrives and alike

You dont say where you are...Buck suggests US so a little more searchign might be in order for that card. Of course its only an example and the XFX cards are good. I have two in SLI and i dont really gain any benefit at presnt albeit they are the older 6800GS's. Still i do regret buying them now...
