No your pretty much screwed, Dx10 wont work on the current video cards...

For dx10 you will need a direct x10 video card, and the new soon to be OS which is Vista..

So you spent no telling how much for that dell system with quad sli video cards...

Your system is not bad at all by the way, just saying that newer technology is coming out very soon and you wont be able to have dx10 unless you get new video cards and the newer OS... Vista has been pushed back again though so I wouldnt sweat it, your system is powerful..

Wish you would have came here on geekstogo first, We could of saved you alot of money by persuading you into getting a custom pc which would be quite abit cheaper...

As I said X2 3800+ in the long run, short run 3700+.

But for cheapness, did anyone see the Tom's Hardware overclocking Pentium D 805 article?

They got it up to 3.6 GHz without changing voltages, without problems. With changing voltages, 3.8 trouble freee. Then, they added water cooling and got it up to 4.1 GHz trouble free. The thing comes at a stock 2.66 GHz for $130 US. Looking VERY attractive to an overclocker.
