Hello,

I plan to upgrade my pc and iam a graphic designer and internet user, i also willing to play the latest pc games. I already have intel core 2 duo 2.4 ghz processor, 500gb hard disk and 19" lcd monitor. So please suggest me a best option for buying intel motherboard, ram and 1gb nvidia graphic card. Also which operating system is best for gaming ( windows xp, vista, windows 7)

what resolution is your monitor? what games do you plan to play? If you can get your hands of windows 7 I can't think of any reason not to install windows 7. why do you have to have a "intel" specific motherboard, check out the link for a Gigabyte LGA 775 board that supports DDR3: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128536

I can suggest a graphic card as soon as I know what games and at what resolution. Are you firm about using an nvidia card?
