So you're building you a new computer?
Then maybe put aside the ATI 9600 and s-754 Sempron ideas and lets build a good machine?

Good decision, your ram is SLOW, and it's a major factor in today's game as much as CPU or video card.

The key question:
What is your budget for all the upgrade?

Socket 939 is more advanced platform, it supports dual channel, and MUCH faster CPUs for future upgrade.

Abit make excellent boards, the s-939 AV8 is a cheap great board, a great overclocker, but it only has AGP slot.If you want a PCI-E, you need a more expensive NForce4 board, but it'll provide you an upgrade path for PCI-E video cards.

A point to think about.

As for the card, If you think of really getting bang for your buck - look for a second hand ATI Radeon 9700 Pro, A lot of enthusiasts now sell them and buy the new XT800/XT850 monsters.

This card may cost even less than a new 9600Pro, but it's completely out of its league.
It's almost as fast as 9800 Pro.

Don't forget, that you need new RAM as well. I don't recommend less than 512 MB.

Athlon XP 3200+ is the fastest AMD processor for socket A (462). This processor has Barton core with 512 KB level 2 cache. It is one of a few socket A CPUs that support 400 MHz Front Side Bus. This processor is the best upgrade option for socket A motherboards that support it, though it does not have the best price/performance ratio. Being the fastest socket A (462) processor, it is probably one of the most expensive socket A microprocessors at the moment
