    Who wants to spend my money?

    Well, I have about $700 to blow, I'm in no realy hurry, but would like to get something done. I have:

    A semi-functional Viper v770 Ultra
    A BH6 with a 500E (fried my damn BF6)on an IWILL slocket 2
    128MB of Corsair PC100 SDRAM that does 150FSB at 2-3-3 no precharge.
    SBLIVE Value!
    6.4 GIG IDE drive,
    9.1 gig U2 SCSI drive,
    Adaptec 2940U2W SCSI controller.

    I am most interested in upgrading the Mobo and the vid card. Be it known though that the IDE drive is filled to the brim.
    I at least need a new vid card, because mine's waterdamaged. So anything you guys have to offer is great!

    BTW, I might also grab me a new waterblock
    since mine is taylored for slot1 cpu's and very hard to mount. Thanks guys.

    mobo, I would suggest P3V4X (with 4 way memory interleaving, performances is up there with BX) and also gives you more options for vid card (1/2 AGP divider).

    Hey Swedishlf,

    Can you tell me how the Iwill SlotketII fried your mobo? I've been thinking of getting one but if there are things to look out for I would like to know.

    Regards MOF

    As NiteOwl said, "ASUS"
    These boards the best for stability, and they overclock well too. I also like Abit for overclocking BX platforms, but some people find this platform less stable

    NiteOwl,

    What does this mean:

    I have the P3V4X and don't know what that means.

    might this be what you are looking for in a water-block?

    MOF: I don't think it was the slocket. It's a long story but one day she just froze up and wouldn't turn on ever again... But i'm very happy with the slocket, except for the mounting things... I hate mounting tabs. With a passion that burns brighter than the north star.

    And Rotor, I almost forgot about your stuff. It's really good. All I need is some prices, what's your site again? And do you accept money orders? Thanks man. I've seen your work, and I like it.

    by the way, I feel I should mention that I have no company loyalties, no problem with bying 3dfx as opposed to Nvidia, or AMD as opposed to intel. (although the latter would definately be more expensive as per chip & mobo)

    Thanks Swedishlf

    You have relieved my mind. When I looked up the Iwill SlotketII it seemed to have every bell and whistle imaginable.

    Excellent, I believe we will be doing business in the near future #Rotor.

    Also, I checked out the stats on the p34vx, and I would rather like higher FSB options than 150, I know my chip and RAM and vid card will do that on a BF6. I was hoping to jump up to the next level.

    Are there any VIA boareds that do higher than 150? Thanks again!

    I would have to reccomend #Rotor's waterblocks. Very well made, lots of work done to make sure everything is right.
    You people who think you know everything really piss people like me off who really do know everything.
