Hmm, that 3700+ looks weird in the rest of that Uber rig, lol. Make sure to overclock it nicely.

Also, seeing as you have money to spare, I recommend getting another gig of RAM.

personally, if I had the money, I'd go dual core. Toledo if possible (2x1MB L2 cache)
even if the games don't benefit much, running apps simultaneously, and some apps designed to utilize 2 cores, will run much better

Soon games will be optimized for dual core systems. So if you get a dual core, you will be able to speed up programs that support SMP, multitask, and be future proof for the new game optimizations.
