You might as well buy an Intel Core 2 Duo cpu/combo. The E6600 Core 2 would be ideal, its cheaper and faster than the 5200+

Christ, where do you people get all this money? That is absurd to pay that much for a power supply or memory or a graphics card. But yeah, you'd be better off getting a Core Duo, and with the kind of budget you have I don't see why you're not getting a Core Duo Extreme.

I concur. Get a new Intel Conroe instead of an AMD.

Is the Combo The MoBo bundled with The CPU,That's the Bundle? I've Been a Die Hard AMD fan,but the Intel stuff really seems to be blowing it out of the water?

This system has to last me a while without upgrades,so I may go with the new intel stuff to get the most out of my build. Thanks For the replies so far guys! Is that PSU a lil much? I've read you need at lest that to run Sli 8800 cards is that true?

I came up with this on the Intel Side:

CPU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819115003 MoBo:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131032

Don't Know Much about Intel Sockets. Is this the Most recent Socket?

Well,I have a pretty good job. But it's gona take a LOT of saving on my end to do it. And computers are my only real hobby so most of my money is between computers and bills. I'm trying to build a beefy sytem so I won't have to upgrade for a while. I think it'll save me money in the long run.

Why be a fan of either chipset? I used to be a die-hard Intel but since lately I've not really cared. Both get the job done pretty well, just depends what you want. I've had this P4 3.0 GHz for a long time now and it's done great for just about everything I've needed. Most of what is bottlenecking my system is the graphics card. In any case, you may save a little bit of money but it'll really sting later when prices drop. When the video card you're going to buy goes from $660 to $300, the PS goes to $100, the RAM to $100, and the CPU and Mobo combined about $300. My GPU was like that, about 6 months after I got it the 6600 GTs went from $200 to like $100.

Like the other say it's probably best to go with a C2D platform right now, however, why don't you wait just a month or two to see what ATI/AMD have cooking up? At least with the competition of the other teams cards you'll save alot of cash.

Excellent Points,I would really like to see the benifits of some price drops:nodding: Another question I have Is the Sli really worth all the extra cash or could you get the performance you want from One card? I know you'll see better performane from 2,but is it worth the cash? My goal is to be able to run UT 2007 STALKER etc on high details,can this be done with one card? I'm kind of hesitant on going Sli,but my feeling is running sli it will take more to outdate my system. I'm I thinking Right?
