you could get a dual core with that vid card and run FEAR and Source and so on very well...

simply saying that cuz soon the single core will be replaced...however...you would get better FPS with the single core...but when you're getting an unnecessary 120 FPS in Source you could give up 5-10 for a more advanced CPU that games will start taking advantage of next year...

if you're stuck on single core...good buy...good choice...

That will be a nice setup for gaming. 2GB of ram is good if you can afford it.

dont use the power supply that comes with your case, though antec makes some nice one, but i wouldnt risk it with a GT in there.

get a 3800+ dualcore cpu first of all and O/C it. also get a decent antec psu, but make sure it has a 24 pin connector. also, if u can afford it, get another gb of ram.
