Me being a gamer, I'm looking for the best of the best that I can buy. (which I have about $600) I am looking at which would be better, AMD or Pentium. My first issue is that when playing a certain game, my screen freezes, blacks out, and returns with a lot of screwed up colors, blacks out again, and then returns to normal... seconds later an ATI window pops up and slows my computer down. So I looked at getting a new vid card. Which was going to cost me about $300 just to get the one I want. Or I could upgrade the whole thing.
My current computer is an Athlon 64 3500+ with 2x512 DDR PC3200 using an AGP 8x Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb.

For the money I can get:
ABIT NI8-SLI GR Socket T (LGA 775) Nvidia nForce 4 SLI Intel Edition ATX
Intel Pentium 4 640 Prescott 800MHz FSB LGA 775 EM64T Processor Model BX80547PG3200F
1x1GB OCZ Gold Series 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) Unbuffered no ECC with a timing of 4-4-4-8
and any $100-$200 PCI-e video card. This would be good because when I get paid again I can use the SLI function on my motherboard.

Also, I was reading that the Fatal1ty AMD board was better for SLI than the NI8, would this be true?

Just get a better AMD mobo with PCI express, and a nice graphics card, there is no reason to build a new PC with what you are running now.
