If you had a $2,200 budget on your next PC gaming build that you plan to build within the next 2 months, considering what will be available in 2 months what GPU/CPU would you go with?

Im trying to budget on $300 for whatever GPU,CPU,and Motherboard each. Interested in Phenom x4 too but cant find much info on supported motherboards.

2 8800GT SLI is looking attractive right now as it seems to be the best price/performance you can do. However, I would like to wait and see what the ATI 3800's are going to be like.

I also plan on building everything around Vista 64 with 4GB of memory.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks!

Its all speculation at this point so hard to say...

Currently you would go
q6600 or e6750
SLI 8800GT
680i chipset
4gb and vista 64bit

But in 2 months we should see some penryns (both wolfdale and yorkfield) AMD will release Phenom and also R670's and NVIDIA is "supposedly" changing 8800 lineup to slot the 8800GT in better $/performance so its anyones guess in 2months.
