i dont think the 10$ extra for a 7200.11 is worth it

why arent u going with 2 8800GTS cz y u get a sli board?

yeah i was going to say NZXT Tempest but it is a mid tower
Two 8800GTS is beyond my budget for now, but I'll be ordering another later later on down the road.

I was going to get the NZXT Tempest, why shouldn't I?

And this is my new rig...My old one is terrible...and I heard the Dual Core was good.
Why...do you suggest something else?

Can you help me find a case big enough for everything and with good cooling like the tempest/thermal take...but cheaper
I neeed something a little cheaper then the thermal ...Something as cheap as the tempest would be fine.

Unless there is no such thing?

And also...whats a good quad core? And is it compatible with all of this stuff?

Because it comes with a free game and its only 10$ more...Eh :P

And do you have a quad core link to suggest?

And will the quad core give me better performance then the dual core?

currently dual core is good for gaming since they only use 2 cores not 4
currently some games are using 4 cores ull get more fps with a dual core than quad core right now
