marvinmatthew;3830514If you're going to spend $1000+ why buy the slower brand of processor?

yeah i kinda am still iffy on the AMD, i "built" a core 2 pc on newegg with all the other hardware for only $10 more, i think i WILL go with the intel rig. also because the EVGA intel mobo looks SICK compared to the AMD one.

confusingkid;3830151ok first things first. NO INTEL lol i have had so much trouble with almost EVERY intel pc ive had.its time for AMD :D i WILL eventually use the SLI config, just maybe after crysis comes out or other demanding games, which will be when i switch to VISTA so the OEM is a good idea. also, no ATI, nvidia blows them out of the water with the price/performance ratio. also im not sure of the PSU either, i might switch it to Antec or something a little bit better known. Thank all of you for the advice on everything, i will definately reconsider some of the things you guys suggested,however, some things i already have my heart set on (such as AMD and Nvidia) any more suggestions? keep em coming :D

1. As said before do yourself a favor and go with Core 2 Duo. 2. If your switching to Vista in 3 months (Crysis comes out November) then why blow $200 on XP when you can just do Vista now? 3. Thats very biased. Show me an Nvidia card with the same performance of a Sapphire X1950XT for $150. 4. If your so intent on getting that 8600GT you might as well get Vista so you can actually use some of its DX10 capability instead of having them wasted on XP. (this isnt flame, just some obvious points and suggestions ;))

1.i decided to go with Intel :D 2. im gonna wait until SP1 on vista, i have no clue when that is but i will wait until the gaming bugs are worked out for the most part. 3. i want the 8600 Gt, nuff said lol.also friend has had VERY bad luck with ati. 4 read #2 ok so i have changed my mind on the Amd/Intel matter but im sticking with nvidia and xp for a while. then when SP1 comes around, a few moths after that, i will get Vista home, then if it still isnt worked out, i can at least go back to xp until vista further improves. thats just my thinking, may not make sense to anyone else but to me, it all works out. and BTW: no hard feelings man, :D

But he said he'd get Vista when SP1 comes around, so why would he want to get a DX9 card, only to switch to Vista and not get the DX10 capability? After all, the 8600GT and GTS perform pretty well. Running two in SLI is fun too. :) So overall, I think he should get the 8600GT over 7900GS/GT because it's an investment in the future.

Better get 8800GTS than 2x8600GT.For Dx10 gaming 8600GT is not enough, it will get less than 20 fps in games like Crysis, Assasin's Creed, World in Conflict... Also, in Dx9 7900 is much better. So if you want dx10 8800GTS, if not 7900/x1950Pro
