Hello, i want to buy a motherboard - cpu - memory and graphic card.
i was thinking about an asus striker II pro - intel quad core 9400 - ddr3 on 1333 and an asus ENGTS250 DK/DI/1GD3 CUDA.

Is it good or i should buy something cheaper or go to i7 technology?

Go with an i7... You will see better performance overall. Then again it depends on how much money you want to spend and what components you already have. IF you go i7 and depending on what kind of gamer you are and what else you will use the PC for will greatly change what components you need to upgrade.

First How much do you have to spend??
Second, what components do you already have? Case? PSU?? Monitor?? Give details...

Yeah, depends how much money you want to spend. I would also go with the i7 though. It has great performance and will future proof your system. The thing about Core 2 quad systems is that intel is not making any new CPU's for them. So if you wanted to upgrade in a year, you would have to buy a whole new system.

Either way you want to go i would wait til march because the price of everything will drop when gt300 and Gulftown hits the streets.

We need your budget though.

well then you can get an i7 920 with a good mobo for that... its about 550 or so US currancy... You can get a nice board too with that maybe a GA x58a ud5r or an EVGA E758-A1 depends if you want usb and sata 3.0 or not
