Right now my processor is bottlenecking my GPU, and my ram is probably bottlenecking both..

I should upgrade in that order..

with harddrive somewhere inbetween.

well, if a budget isnt really a big deal then I say socket lga775 motherboard, xms2 x2 gb of ddr800 ram, e6600, 8800gtx, and a copy of windows vista home premium.

Then you will be all set for crysis and the future dx10 games.
