Dude, I have a 3200 and there is no bottlenecking. I run all games except BF2 (and that's a RAM issue) on highest settings with no hiccups, and I havn't even overclocked yet. If you've got the money you might as well go with the GTX.

Yeah...some people have created this myth that unless you have an FX-55 or some crap a high end GPU will be "bottlenecked"

While it is true that fatser CPUs give higher framerates the difference is like 5-10 which really isn't a lot and not noticable in real world performance

Another option you may wanna consider is an x1800 card, you could get the XL and overclock it to XT speeds and beyond which would give roughly a 7800GTX performance in games

The 7800GT can run anything out smooth like butter though
Intel C2D E6320 / AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Gigabyte 965P DS3 / DFI nF4 Ultra-D
2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB
OCZ GameXStreme 850w / OCZ StealthXStream 600w

The 7800GT's from eVGA are giving free copies of COD2 but I think it ends on the 31st so I can't get it.

I think I will just go with the GTX since there shouldn't be any bottle necking.
