I would wait for the the April price cuts for the C2D's at least, then buy a DX10 video card when you need one. | Report abuse proof March 20, 2007 9:11:01 PM ASUS Stryker Extreme Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 OCZ 2GB DDR2 1066 SLi Memory Thermaltake Tough Power 700W PSU eVGA 8800GTS Western Digital Raptor X 150GB (add one more and stripe them) Noctua NF-UH12 HSF | Report abuse menko March 20, 2007 9:50:38 PM that is pretty close of what i was going to buy. so i didn´t make a bad choice. if i play at lower resolutions that 1920x1200, my rig will be enouth at the moment. | Report abuse proof March 20, 2007 10:22:01 PM Yes, but go for the GTS.
