You have a very good reason to buy a new computer... cant wait till that game. Anyways if you want a new PC buy a barebones kit from somewhere like They are worth and you can upgrade your video card later if you want to wait on someof the more expensive pieces that will be cheaper when the game comes out.

there is not specific requiremtn for dual core motherboards to support dual core processors, you can run a dual cor processor on exsistign 939-pins motherboards as well, and this makes it definite that if u r using nVidia SLi, you can use 2 Gfx cards and a dual core processor.

why are you considering Intels knowing the current leakage in 90nm wafer. you have to get an air conditioned casing for that.

I don't think now is a great time to upgrade, maybe you want to wait untill the dual core CPU's come out.

Just a suggestion

XS RULES!!! I have officially referred you.
