I guess the other question is AMD vs Intel, ATI vs nVidia, CrossfireX vs SLI, etc. I know there's countless similar threads, but I just don't know enough about it to really go and trust a thread without stating my specific situation. I'd LIKE to set a price cap at around 1600.
What are you going to be doing with the computer most?
Edit: NM Max FSX see it now.
MOSTLY Day to day use to be honest. Some audio production and video playing to a plasma. But every now and then I get on a huge gaming kick, and spending the extra $$ is worth it to me to be able to play the games I like at some nice settings.
