Not trying to discourage you here. You are facing the same situation I was/am still looking at. The biggest hurdle you are going to face is that the socket 775 stuff is 3 generations behind current technology, and in the next couple months will be down another generation.

560 series cards run in the neighbourhood of $180+ new. If you are going to get that decent a card, you should definitely look at newer board/cpu combo. You are going to have to go that route at some point, might as well start now.
