I would say $1500 minimum. At most, $1700.

2x7800GTX with a 3500+? Bottleneck galore? I'm pretty sure even one would be close to being bottlenecked, lol.

as I said in another thread, CPU's dont really bottleneck graphics cards...

even if he were putting a 7800GTX AGP (lets pretend one exists) into a 2GHz XP machine with 512mb....it wouldn't be bottlenecking it per se, it's just his machine is outdated...simple as that.

3500+ definitely wouldn't "bottleneck" that system and it'd still be quite powerful for gaming
