That's why it couldn't handle all those programs, because you only have 756mb of ram, and I'm assuming that processor is a single core.

Yeah, it's definitely single core. I remember reading the alienware newsletter of them releasing dual core technology :P

What is your budget? I suggest a Gigabyte 965P-DS3, e6600, and 2x1gb of DDR2-800 ram.

You probably don't even need to overclock, but if you feel the e6700 was nessecary, take the e6600, invest in 2 hours reading and understanding, and bingo.

Video card I am buying is the nVidia 8800 GTX. My budget is somewhere between 2-3,000.

I got exactly the same as what b1gapl recommended. (well when the *******s decide to deliver it)

What GFX card you going for?

Sry you replied just before me.

Can i suggest waiting for dx10 release, thus saving money and buying something that will be just as sufficient til more cards come out and they all drop in price.

Buy a DX10 card when they come out.
