so the phenom would be the way to go for multitasking?
and, HD 4850 for graphics is good?
what about Nvidia 9800GT?
For multitasking, probably. For gaming use, it seems I had botched benchmarks (my fault) and the athlon is better.
4850 is better than a 9800. Also look for a 4870 or 5750.
5750 has Dx11 and eyefinity support however, and it scales much better in crossfire.
