Put a 6800 gt in that system and you will be set... if you want to burn money though, a fx 55 would be good. Keep the motherboard, no point wasting money getting a new one. Get some coarsair xms, 1gb of it would do.

If I were to build a "xXxtreme" gaming rig, this is what I do.

DFI "LANPARTY nF4 SLI-DR" NVIDIA nForce4 SLI
AMD 64 FX-55
Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series (4x512MB)
GeForce 6800 Ultra (2) SLI
WD Raptors 74gig 10000rpm (2) RAID 0
WD 250gig 7200rpm (additional storage)
Sony DVD-ROM
Sony DVD/CDburner
SB Audigy 2 ZS 7.1
LOGISYS Computer Pre-Assembled Clear Acrylic Case with 5 LED Fans
650watt PSU
Water Cooling System

May-be a dual 20.1 LCD flat screens to go with it all.

That's probably in the $6,500 US range.

Would be nice!

you will end up with something like what you already have in your sig, but with a better video card.

just buy a new graphics card the rest of your comp is enough to handle the latest games. look at a 6800gt or a x800xt or x800xt pe

People aren't reading the post. You need a new complete system - not an upgrade. When I saw R8000, I was confused as I thought it was a part number (stupid American that I am). So, I'll give it a shot. This setup comes in at R8122 so you may have to cut back on graphics and upgrade later. Many of the things I'd want aren't currently available and the better graphics cards cost more than your budget. The selection below also includes a monitor.
