Wow, so I can get the 3200+ then I can upgrade the video card to a 6800GT or an x800 (which one is better for gaming).

Then I can downgrade the motherboard. I can get the same board without SLI because I won't be using it then. (I saw the mobo earlier.)

or the 3200+ with 2GB of dual channel?

Desicions desicions.

do you multitask THAT much to need 2 gigs? i would say get the faster cpu and the 1g. 1g should serve pretty much anyone and anything, unless you do vid. editing at the same time that you do photoshop and at the same of listening to music, surfing the web, and watching t.v. then you would need 2g. otehrwise, no.

Get the higher clocked CPU with the 1GB RAM. Always get the higher CPU for more processing power.

Ok, thank you. 2 GB was just a thought. Load windows in like 3 seconds.

Next question:

6800 GT

or

2 6600 GT's in SLI?


You guys are awsome.

2x6600gt's dont equal the performance of a single 6800 so i'd go with the 6800 but if you wait til july the new 7XXX series will be out and then you'll see some power
