This has me thinking, my rig is at the bottom. Will my 3500+ be bottelnecking the rig? I plan on OC everything once the gt's arrive, but will it all work well together. I was planning on getting a new processor once the G8 series comes out, but was hoping to jump up to next gen because the pin count will change and if I get another 939 I won't be able to use it in a new board combo...

No, Video card is defianately most important as games are so dependant on them. Also a good psu is more important then a monitor, speakers, or a hard drive. A good psu is the difference between maximum performance and poor performance.

So youd get the best mobo before the best cpu or RAM? A mobo isnt really that great of a factor. You just have to find a sturdy well made one.

I rated based on what I would rather spend more money on. I figured memory as the highest because obviously if its low everything is going to stutter... including windows. And psu a little overrated in my book. If you want it to look any good a good LCD is needed, and sound is more interesting and immerses you ingame much much more.
