If you haven't already ordered, then see if you can get a 9600 GSO for cheaper then the 3850. As it will handle COD4 very well and if you can save a few bucks. Then why not go for it?

Well, I won't be getting my check for another week or so...I called up the people today and they said it would be 7-10 days from Monday and they don't know why the person before told me it would come Tuesday. So that sucks lol

Also, will the price of the current Intel chips go down even more when i7 is released? and when are the new chips released?

Well that's good to know....I was actually hoping that they wouldn't because I'd hate to push this back even longer than needed. Even if it meant saving money, I don't care anymore lol

And all RPG's Suck But just since Oblivion was mentioned, remember when that was the game that if you could max it out, you had the best computer on these forums? lol
