I think I understand what you are trying to do and you already told me that you do not plan on upgrading your PC once it's built but I strongly recommend you get a Geforce 5xxx series or 6xxx series then upgrade to a cheaper 8xxx card when they are released later. Even the lower end of the 8xxx series will be better than todays cards and much cheaper I estimate $300.

Your looking at upgrading in a 6-8 month time frame if you do this. and a 5xxx or 6xxx will play WoW just fine and hold you over till then in most ocassions.

Thanks tyler for the advice but

its too late anyways my order was processed this morning and is en-route via fed-ex 2 day

i doubt i will ever spend 300+ for a video card.
like stated earlier the games i play right now arent that demanding
but the 7600gt should serve me fine if i find any current games to play
I was strecthing for the $189
if i get into serious games on down the road i could pick up another 7600gt and run it in sli? maybe
