Not to mention the 5830 only comes in a 1gb flavor on Newegg, and that GTX460 768mb will choke at very high resolutions.
768mb choke at what resolutions? are you going to be linked to a 50 or 60 inch monitor? or running giant dual or triple screens? if not, it wont choke at any resolution. My old single 9800GTX+ 512mb could play crysis on two 30 inch lcds on high settings....hm. That said, if i was going to get a fermi 460 i would get 1gb though, just saying 768mb is far enough.

gtx 460 (even the 768mb version) is faster than a 5830. in some tests it's not by a whole lot, but they're both in the same price range so the 460 is the smart option here.

if you're considering my build and want a less powerful card, you could switch out the original ram/gfx card combo i listed with this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.445364
includes the same set of ram along with a 5770. this switch would also save you around $50.

from what you have said so far 8 gigs of ram would be way more then you need.

if you go with an AMD build get the 4 gig set that was already posted, and if you go with the i7 you want to get the OZC gold 6 gig set that was posted.

the 5770 would be a good video card also if you wanted to save the 50 dollars on the other bundle that was posted but I am of the mind that if your spending that much money might as well get the little bit nicer video card even if you dont think you need it.

better gpu> insane amount of ram. anything past 4 gigs is useless for the average user IMO. Not saying you cant have 6-12 gigs, just why. besides if your going to run windows 7 anyways, use any extra flashdrives u have lying around to dedicate to Readyboost which allocates the free space on flash drives to speed up desktop processes and windows features instead of bogging down your ram. I have 4 gigs of ram, and total of 6gigs extra flash drives for ready boost, my day to day processes are quite speedy even when im playing intense games on my other screen. just an idea.

Yeah, 6-12 gigs would probably only be useful if you were future-proofing. :P
And if wanted to open things faster than you can blink five times.

or if you were doing intense auto cad(machine shop) or video editing, or had a bunch of large displays you wanted to run simultaneously.
