That build macdawg put together is perfect. Here's another case option:

I wouldn't go x2 unless your budget went way up, no its not worth it now and yeah u could get a sli board with one 6800gt now and one later....

These systems are looking good, I was thinking duel core because sometimes I run two copies of dark age of camelot at the same time and sometimes the processor has a hard time keeping up, I could spend up to $1500 if I had to, any other system builds would be great thanks.
