i read good things that the 3850 will beat the 4670 with no aa on but the 4760 beats the 3850 with aa on
if you have big moniter use the 3850 and smaller moniter 4670 use larger moniter

I'll probably have a 17" monitor; at least until I can upgrade/ask for a new one for my birthday (may 1st). I'll probably get most of my parts near my birthday, too, so maybe I'll just wait for the graphics card.

I know this is probably a stupid question, but what is aa?

Should I get the heatpipes for my hdd, or forget about it? (that would save me $15)

Anti-Aliasing. It basically smooths out the lines.

It is called "eye candy" It makes the games look better to you. It taxes the GPU quite a bit though.

AA isn't a card feature. AA is processed by the GPU. AA feature is within the game.
