Unfortunately I am a INTEL guy, so I would have to seriously think about switching to AMD. Although the argument could be said that I have nothing to base that off of sense I have NEVER used AMD personally, I just prefer and am used to using INTEL.
The reason I want to run 2GB's of memory is b/c I am constantly alt-tabbing between programs, I mean...I routinely run a game, winamp, TeamSpeak(voip), and a browser window or two. And with this system I also plan on adding a second monitor to it. That is why I prefer to have 2GB's.
I've been reading the forums since my first post and have been seeing a lot of post's recommending the 6800GT. Would that be a safe bet of a GPU for what I want to do?
The most I want to spend for the entire system is $1200-1500US.
