Default Choices for my Gaming Rig

3700+ San Diego 233
6800 220


3500+ Venice , Clawhammer? 210
6800 GS 290

3000+ Venice 139
7800 GT 319


I am not sure on the totals but I am trying to debate whether to spend more money on the processor or the videocard. I am planning on playing BF2. Like what would be the best system I could get with a budget around 450-550? This is just for the processor and the videocard, I have everything else. Thank you!

3700+ SD 233
7800 GT 319
TOTAL = 552
That's only $2 out of your budget

Yes, Venice is better for those.

The 3200+ and 7800GT looks nice.

3700+ and 6800GS is nice too.

NVidia has another bangbreaker up its sleeve, similar to what the 6800GS did for the GeForce 6 series .

ya what do you think will drop more in price by lets say end of the year?

A cpu? or the graphics card?

Maybe I can get the 3700+ and just wait on the video card dropping in price. or purcahse the 7800 GT and wait till a price drop occurs on the 3700+.
