i was looking at the:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Toledo 2.4GHz Socket 939 Dual Core Processor Model ADA4800CDBOX - Retail for 294 $$

seems like a **** good deal for you buck and that way the extra money can go to my video card which is the other big expense!

I can't decide between ati or nvidia i hear both options are good anyone got a narrow down or good high quality cards i can look at that are not redicliously expensive , but will do what i want them to.
