I would use the last build since you have an E6600 and a 7950gt

Also your not going to OC a Core 2 Duo? AT ALL???

Thing is DX10 cards are going to be coming out pretty soon in the mid-line range. They will probably be just as good as the top end 7 series and the new radeon series for the same price if not cheaper. So its hard to say.

But also the X1950xt is faster than the 7950gt but if you play at a highher res than 512 will be nicer. If you play at 1240x1000 though you should be fine with x1950XT
