    The first Demo is nice. :D
    I have running the "ZoTac GeForce nVidia 8800 GT 512MB DDR3 256-BIT" and now - the P4/3GHz is the slowest component. :D

    I have one of the 8800's in my intel rig, has 640MB of ram on it. More than my first PC.

    Bare in mind that card uses two slots, and you need a pretty good power supply.

    That's not enough power.
    Also, you're wasting money on the Ultra. Next gen cards are coming out in March, GX2 should be +/- 30% faster than Ultra @ ~$500 or $600.
    If you have to buy now, a G92 GTS overclocked will still out perform the ultra and will cost $300..

    He's right, that PSU isn't going to cut it.

    Yep, that's what happens when you don't keep up with hardware vendors.
