Good GPU is always your biggest factor for gaming, get the best graphics card you can afford.

can you get a 7600GT or something to put on that DFI board with an Opty?
you could SLI it later as an upgrade.

Really you do not want to be going slower than a 7600GT or xt1800GTO but preferably step it up to a 7900GT or XT1800XTX 512 OC if you can.

Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint
Samsung SM2443BW 24"

MrCoffee I Can affored the first Intel rig that has X1800XT in it [tne XTX Series is only 1900 if im correct]

Anyway.. that's still the main idea of that thread, which rig would do better the AMD or the Intel

And you just popped another question :P What would do better, two cheap cards like 7600GT on SLI or one x1800xt? lol

2 x 7600 GT's in SLI perform about the same as 1 x 7900
however I would recommend you stick with single card solutions
