graphic card upgrade(PCI) or motherboard upgrade?
i have a intel 845glly. the problem is that i wanted to upgrade my graphics card but i have a PCI slot so i have limited choices. i have the option of ati radeon 9250. but my hardware venderor was teling me that i should not buy a pci card and should go for a motherboard upgrade...but my motherboard is not compatible with nowadays' processors so i would have to go for an entire system overhaul...i wanted to know that is my venderor cheating me or i should go for a total upgrade...also please suggest the best config i can have below rs10k

yeah...see my post
'but my motherboard is not compatible with nowadays' processors so i would have to go for an entire system overhaul'
that includes the processor also...the vendor told me that new motherboards aren't compatible with my processor(intel pentium IV 1.7Ghz)
by the way, thanx for your help...
