if you want the dual core, I've been eyeing this one

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor, $183
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103747

and those AM2 dual core chips will go with the same motherboards we were already talking about.

oh btw, ambush i pm'd you... and not only that.. yes this system will last you 2-3 years on gaming no doubt... i won't guarantee you'll always get full quality.. because games will be rendered under dx10 soon enough.. and these cards are only dx9 capable.. but you still will be able to play the games, just without all the added eye candy of dx10... but that is fixable just buy buying a newer card later on down the line if need be...

but really dont' worry about it... the x1900xt is one of the best cards on the market right now and will last a while

Tanks so much for everything, i like what i have heard and will most likely go with a dual core that Shannon has posted but im still a little fuzzy on the RAM deal. Im guessing good ram has alot to deal with alot about the computer.
