order an 8800 off of newegg, its WAY cheaper. they sell 8600GT's for like 200$ (bestbuy)

anyways, crysis wont really max it out, it will evenly spread the load off all of the cores, but you wont NEED the 4, probably just 2 of them.

no games will use them, but if you do lots of video encoding it will help a lot. also 3D rendering of big objects will be sped up dramatically.

CSS is single threaded, and im pretty sure age of empires is too.

I have a $100 gift card and 350 in cash.

I'll see if my mom lets me give her the cash and I use her credit card.

I'm waiting for 45nm to go quad. The QX9650's are getting over 4 Ghz on air, hopefully the mainstream lineup won't do bad either.
