no REAL budget, since im just buying the parts as i can afford them, starting with the phenom + mobo, but id like to keep the chunks as small as i can while still getting a good rig.

Well in that case, I would reconsider that 9800.
Yes its a good card, but for a couple dollars more (or less) you can get a better AMD card.

Basically, here's how it works.
HD 4830 = 9800GT
HD 4850 = GTS 250
HD 4870 = GTX 260
HD 4890 OC = GTX 275
HD 4850 x2 = GTX 285 (x2 is a bit better here)
HD 4870 x2 = GTX 260 SLI

Hope this helps.

There are also the 5xxx cards which have DX11 support, but you can pick up a 4xxx really cheap right now.

what about the 5770? the 1GB DDR3 sounds tasty.

The 4850 has 1GB GDDR3.

4870 and 4890 have GDDR5.

The 5770 is somewhere between a 4870 and 4890. Good card. I put one in my brothers new build.

If you are gonna buy a 5770, spend a few extra dollars and get a 4850 x2. It outperforms $300 cards for $200.

BTW: that mobo/cpu/ram combo is a ripoff. Phenom 9350 is horrible. Get a 9600 or a 9850.

Here's what I recommend.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...7BBTkwCjCECjCE
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...996&CatId=2320
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...204&CatId=2261
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...141&CatId=2545

Save a few bucks on the CPU and other components, and you can get a better video card.

This setup will be loads better.
