Well guys thanks for your imput, also to answer some questions I will be using this as my gaming computer and multi tasking.. Yes, I will also be using the 64 bit OS, but i've had a change of heart please tell me what you guys think of this
I was thinking of getting an Intel Q6600 processor with a mobo with 1 pci express x16 port like the gigabyte or an asus and just get a 4870 GPU.. My plan was to do this because next year sometime in christmas 2009 I was going to switch to the new i7 chips and you need a new motherboard the x58 and all that.. Now I've changed my mind for two reasons #1 i'll be saving money in the long haul and #2 the new denab processors are supported on the am2+ mobos.. So now I want to get a
phenom 9950 BE http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819103291
AND the best am2+ mobo I could find http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813131339
Also that mobo has expansion of up to 4 GPU's so i should be set for a while right?
I figure I could get this with the 4870 gpu and it should hold me over for a while then sometime next year or whatever i could always upgrade to the best processor amd has to offer ie denab and at least it will be supported on the am2+ mobo.. I'm trying to future proof my rig really because i'm tired of upgrading every year I would like this to last me at least 3 years before i have to do an entire remodel lol..
Anyway what's your guys opinion think I'm making a good decision?? I'm sure that rig would be able to handle crysis at high settings and if it could handle that game than i should be set with most other games for a while..
