SHould be quite zippy, as the 1900XTX is about the best single card solution there is right now for gaming...

(If it were me, hypothetically looking to save $300 or so, I'd bump the processor selection down a single notch, and get an Opteron 180 dual core instead, as most games played at high res are gpu bound, where the extra 200 MHz on core speeds will usually gain you only .5-1 frames/sec in games such as FEAR; I'd also save another $100 by getting the 1900XT instead, with a core/mem speed only barely below the XTX...; with the $400 saved total, you have an option of getting an even better video card 18 months later...!)

If the money is unimportant, get the FX60, though, they rock~

AMD 64 X2 is definitively a better deal!

No need for 10,000 RPM HD, you are NOT editing videos!
SATA II 7200 with 16 MB RAM is to good !!!

As far as for dual Video, it is just a marketing gimmick to suck fools out of the money, unless you do stock market and need 4 monitors or more.

Agreed to save cash, but not agreed since everyone and their mother's uncle has optys. :lol:

After working 21 weeks straight at a telephone company in Katrina affected areas, working 13 on 1 off, 12 hour days. I believe it was worth treating myself to a little something special :)
