ok, I've put through for a quote for the parts, and I've settled with the Gainward Bliss GF 6800GS SLI 512MB 1.4ns DDR3, Goes Like ****, as the reviews are really good, and I don't want to have to change my graphics card for a while!

Thanks for your advice,

Charlie -

"cpu: either get the 3800+ or the 4400+"

why? i would figure that 4200+ would be better than 3800+
are the other X2's good? or just the 3800 or 4400?

You can overclock the 3800+ to 4200+ speeds, so it's a waste of money paying for a 4200+ when you can easily overclock a 3800+ to the same speeds. With stock cooling too.
