I plan to buy a GTX

Also, get a Cheap Board that supports the Unlocking of Four cores, Then Get a Cooler master Hyper 212+, or A Corsair Hydro H50/H70 And overclock the crap out of it. If you have the 550Ti 1GB, And a Dual-core Unlocked to a Quad Core, and Somewhere In the 4Ghz Area, You should have a bottleneck free system, and somewhere in the 4GB Area Of DDR 1333 or Higher (really recommend 2000, or 2133.)

Its showing that the i3-2100 outperforms my Q9550 at stock in Metro 2033. Thats pretty impressive for a dual core.
Lol..

I already have a Quad core, don't want 2 of them, i am either going with a six core or dual core. Most likely the dual core, unless i feel the need to grab a six core when i decided to order.
