**** if that's the case, I can drop down to 3500-4k and put some money into revamping the suspension on my c6 Corvette. Should I drop one top end card and wait for them to become cheaper and then upgrade? Is that topend processor worth it? I need some suggestions to make my decision on whether to go all out or not. I'm currently playing a lot of CS source, WoW and Battlefield 2.

Lol If i had a $50,000 car I'd honestly say screw PCs. Put that 5 grand into a borla exhaust, headers, intake, suspension work. I'm not joking either lol.
