What Grayfox said! We are almost agreeing together 100% except I'd rather go with his Nvidia choices or the ATI X1800 GTO or ATI X1800 over the ATI X1600 any day.

Keep this in mind: High end gaming rigs are demanding high end cards. Why? It is because the latest and greatest games are putting heavy demands on the video card. You will be able to play the games but not at the highest settings.
