Well Conroe right now beats everything in gaming. And why not get a 7950GT, they're in the same price range as the 7800gs.

don't go with a 7800GS as seeing as you will be getting a new motherboard there is no reason to go for AGP. you'll be hearing plenty of echoes for Core 2 and i'm one of them. check out the e6600 Conroe
