Default Processor vs. Graphics card?

Which will enhance the likes of next-gen games and such? Im thinking ahead here when i buy my new computer, so i need a long lasting compromise of power and processing. I have about 1300-1500 dollars to spend. It has a G800 GT in it and i was wondering if i should get a second GT or a 3500 or better proc instead

Generally games usually draw more from your video card then anything, however if you have a outdated processor like XP processor your definitely going to need a new processor. I would try and get a 7800 GTX instead of two 6800 Gt's and then get a 3500 Venice or 4000 San Diego Core as a processor. This way you have decent processor with a lot of graphics power and the option to add a second gtx
