If you can afford a little extra go for the 4850 and that Asus TOP edition is a nice pick btw

final cost for everything before shipping is $657.88.

after mir it's right around $600.

Thats if I go with the 9800gt and the E7300 processor.

+1. The Asus 4850 is a nice card and worth the price increase in my opinion.

And like I said ati does fine in Crysis

Sapphire HD 4830 Video Card Review | Hardware Secrets

PowerColor HD 4830 Review Page 7 - Testing: Crysis - Overclockers Club

Radeon HD 4830 review HIS technology

9800gt is nice but if you can afford a 4850 I would go with that. 4830 is comparable but I believe it will overclock higher than a 9800gt.

Hey wait, I have an extra power supply.

It's a Silencer 750 watt.

I was running it on another computer though with the GTS 8800 and it blew up and I'm getting a replacement as it still is on the warranty.

Think I could use that one instead?
