You know what.
I just bought an opteron 165, new gfx card, mobo,ram.
IM SO STUPID.
I couldve just saved that and gotten the credit card from new egg and build from there!!!.

OR should i wait more till these games come out, just incase gfx card price drop or new ones come out?
what do you think....

i have to go to some dinner now, and then i, gonna go watch the simpsons so sill be back later tonight.
thanks
lol i'm watching simpsons too

if u want a better system, wait for the 9 series, so maxing out the new dx 10 games with dx 10.1 cards should be a snap

What if you got the 8800GTX instead? Would that handle it?

The 8800gtx should handle it, especially the ultra. If you want you can get a lower card for temporary purposes before the new 9 series come.

no... loss of dual-channel mode.... but anything above 2 gb is overkill unless ur doing CAD and have a 64bit OS

wow, i just got back from the movie...and it was
HILARIOUS...everyone has gotogo watch it.
Well i guess ill wait for the 9 series. But ill show my co worker the links you guys provided.

well i work at 10 in the morning so i gtg sleep....but before i do i have one more question.
When i turn my pc on my gfx card temps are around 49-52. WHen i play a game it gets to around 70. But after the lowest it will get to is 62 and sometimes back to around 59.
I have one regular case fan in the back and one on the front bottom.
Am i doing anything wrong? Or do i need better case fans. ONe of them is from emachines and the other is with the case i got from my manager...its a reallly old one. Big though and was like the old creamy white color.
