nod 32 is probably the best out there, but unless you illegally get it i would suggest AVG which is great. Dont get Norton imo its worse than having a virus.

Well i doubt that about 100% Nvidia would have sued there asses of if they did because there effectively hacking the mobo drivers on the 680i board. however with Nvidia most likely leaving the chipset industry you will be able to Xfire and SLI on the same board in 2009."
here's a link to an interview about crossfire on nforce mobo"
This is reminiscent of Skulltrail, im guessing they paid Nvidia a big truck of cash, however we will have SLI on intel Chipsets next year (most likely) so thats going to hurt there marketing plan.

also remember not all mobos can support more than a certain amount of RAM i.e. 2gig may be the limit, since you didnt specify, if your working with DDR then this could be the case but if your using DDR2 then dont worry.

also remember that AA/AF is memory intensive so more would be better however if the card is at a 128 bit memory interface then theres no point really in increasing memory, so im just going to say dont look at memory at all look at the card first.

There IS NO heat issue with the HD 4850, all that is happening is the Fans speed is defaulted to low and can be changed manually.

it means the motherboard supports upto 1066MHZ RAM so you can put in a 667 MHZ or 800MHZ inside.

the 9800GTX+ has an RRP of 229 dollars and just about beats a HD 4850.

actually not, even though hes got a P4 he will still get decent FPS at higher resolutions (considering the CPU) as games are def more GPU intensive than CPU these days.
