^ From where are you getting the parts??
and if it is a gaming PC, then invest more on the card than the CPU...You get away with X3 440 for a gaming build and then get a better graphics card...

$20 saved on the cpu doesn't get a better gfx card...

If you get the msi 890gx board, crossfire is an option at a later date.
