Make sure your motherboard can support it. Not all LGA 775 boards can support Core 2.

its futrue proof IMO get a expensive card now, when you need it get a second one or 3rd if your mobo will take it. and by that time it will be cheap

thats what i wanted, but i think by the time i get the money for an 8800GT, it will be sold out at most places.
In a year or so, i dont think they will sell 9800 series any more, so it would be best if you went with the GTX 200 series.

That's not a Pentium D, it says Pentium Dual-Core. Pentium D's are based on Pentium 4's, Pentium Dual-Core's are similar to a C2D.

XD, no it doesn't really mean that. It could, but all of those computers on that site are C2D - Core 2 Duo - There E8500 etc.

The Pentium D is a dual core CPU but its not the whole Intel like of Dual processors. There family names, C2D is a family name, Pentium is a family name of CPU's, and the next family is going to be the i7 family.

One: The pentium D has a horrible architecture. What are they using in it, two P4's or something stuck together?
Two: They run VERY HOT!
