Depends on if he wants to run with all the eye candy and at that high of a resolution. Some people are just fine with Med settings at 1024*768.

You think about running unreal tournament 2007 on a single card with resolution of 1600 x 1200 with highest settings its just not going to work. You getting a dual core processor? you want to even if its just the x2 4200+ because games in the near future will be using this too.
that is crazy. why would you need 1600x1200. i wouldn't reccomend the 4200+ either. i reccomend either the x2 3800+ or the opteron 165.

Yeah but i was just saying 1600 x 1200 to give u an idea of why it is needed. If u dont want to upgrade again for another 3 years then get an SLi board or crossfire is what i meant.
And how can a x2 3800 be better than the x2 4200 which can be overclocked to the same as the x2 4400.

GEIL value (if you get it this week it will be cheaper.) http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...aMY_2d005_2dGL

It is also meant to be quite a happy overclocker.

my 3800+ is at 2.5ghz which p-rating wise is equal to the 4800+ toledo. i think in some respects it will outperform the 4800+. i've managed this with the stock cooler. that is the reason why i suggested the 3800+. i think there may be a chance that SLI will be abandoned unless there is vast improvement in the dual card sli configs. supposedly the new 4 card setups have shown significant performance boosts but that is just costly and impractical. if they can translate this performance to the 2 card config then it may continue.

Ok for a start the UL8 is an AGP board so i wouldnt recommend that.

Gigabyte GA-K8NS is also AGP.

Asus A8V-E SE this board is quite good and seems to be the kind of thing you want.

The Asus A8V isnt quite as good.

I'd say go for the Asus A8V-E SE.
