All of those will basically max everything except Crysis and they come very close (basically no super high AA which to me doesn't do much in Crysis).

Plus later on you can upgrade a graphics card a lot easier then upgrading the cpu, mobo, and ram all at once.
i agree here.

if you go with 775 socket chip, it will cost you alot more in the future to upgrade chips as you would need new mobo/ram/chip to do so.


getting the i7 with a really good vcard and upgrading vcards later on.
and only spending the money on the new vcard.
