    I had an xp 1800 and a 9800 pro and it was a decent combo, 3 years ago. How good of a deal are you giving your buddy?

    GREAT DEAL for $100. But a better CPU is a must these days, at least a 2500+.

    I have my 2500+ Barton OC'd to a 3200+ (190FSB) with a 9700 Pro and it owns. IT OOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWNNNNNNNNNNNNSSSSSSSS!

    lol...190FSB. I got 260FSB 1:1 with my mobile 2600+, then my PC threw up and now it hates me. 24/7 240FSB 1:1 to keep it cool.

    hmm...$100 is basically just paying for the vid card and not the CPU. but it's a good deal to your friend i think. my friends have money, so i know i could at least get $125. Try more if you dare...

    Than why didn't you indicate it... You have to post more clearly next time.
    It is an alright price..but I would be getting a whole new comp if I was him.

    depends on the stepping of the 1700+

    i run a 1700+ OCd to 2.5 Ghz and a 6800GT (well, i did until my water cooling leaked and friend my AGP slot :mad: )

    but yeah, its not a bad combo as the GPU has more affect on games then the CPU would.

    Dude, my new Chaintech 7NIL1 doesn't support VCore adjustments, but my old Asus A7N8X-X did.

    I got the 7NIL1 because I want an mATX "bread box" PC and this was the best mATX mobo I could find :hs:.

    wouldn't be looking for performance from a board that doesn't even support vcore adjustment lol. but if you just want it to run, im sure it's fine.

    you should think about wheather the performance of your processor will bottleneck the vid cards capablities
