A little background on me: I am a web designer and gamer. I use PhotoShop CS 2 daily, and am constantly multi-tasking. It's not unusual for me to have over 40 windows up at once. My current system is dieing quickly, and i want to upgrade. Some of the games i plan to play in my offtime will be: Fable, Oblivion, Unreal2, UT2004 GOTYE.
I was thinking about getting a AMD X2 and a SLIx16 Motherboard with a 300GB SATA hdd, maybe 2 in a mirrored array, i also want at least 1GB memory and a nice modular power supply.
Heres my questions, should i spend the extra money on an X2 or should i just get the 64 4800+? Also, i use only nvidia graphicxs cards, so should i get a 6600, 6800, 7600, or 7800 pci-x videocard? I'm kinda behind on my videocard stats, so i really need some help here guys. Im needig to keep under about $850 for these parts.
