my 780 g chipset runs wicked fast....

if you can go for the 8800gs, it will kill and 8600gts and they are around the same price most places, even an 8800gt is not too bad.

1st, What is your working budget total, and what will it be primarily used for?

2nd, your choices doesn't look like a "new" computer. What I mean is, they are very budget minded items. What are you upgrading from?

The min spec video cards would be 8800GS or HD 3850 if you are going to use this for gaming.

Well after looking at those motherboards on newegg, both deactivated, I assume you are not from the US?

Is it even possible for you to consider a AMD 780G, nvidia 750a, or AMD 770 chipset motherboard?

And The computer will be used mainly for gaming
