    How much is too much for a video card?

    $300 sounds like a lot for a video card. Maybe it depends on how many games you play. Me, I never spend more then $150 on a video card (half what you spend).

    New version of windows and 64-bit?

    Dead? You think it is dead? Microsoft is coming out with Vista that will fully support 64-bit. I agree there is no point to use 64-bit Windows XP, however 64-bit is far from being dead. Once Vista gets released that will breathe new life into it.

    Anybody else use only the onboard audio?

    Never free. The manufacturer ups the price on the motherboard to add in the cost of the audio chip. Plus you pay for all the audio cables they throw in the box.

    Most Expensive Piece of Hardware You Own?

    Never buy Sony products. You paying for the name, and most of the time Sony doesn't even manufacturer it's own products anymore. Get a Samsung. They produce CRT and LCD monitors of equal quality to Sony.

    Anybody else use only the onboard audio?

    Onboard sound also. I'm not deaf, but I don't mind it. I'm mostly too busy fragging in a game to worry about sound quality.

    Most Expensive Piece of Hardware You Own?

    I use air cooling. Not sensible to spend hundreds of dollars on water cooling to cool a cpu that only costs a couple hundred. Good air cooling is only 40. In my personal computer, the highest price item is the video card for 289.
