Q6600 @3.6GHz ´1080p+480GTX=Bottleneck

480GTX is slightly < 570GTX so big bottleneck with Q6600/e8400 stock

I think my first order of business is to grab a video card first, then think about a cpu. I was not even considering upgrading my cpu, considering that 1) I have it easily OC'd at 3.2 from 2.66. I could probably push it to 3.6 fully stable. 2) My computer is all about gaming. I've always thought that duo cores are almost as good as quad cores when it comes to gaming, since most games do not fully utilize 4 cores.

What I really want are those 6950s IF I could get them below $160. My second option is the gtx 250 for below $60. As for the rest of the cards (gtx 460, 6850, 6870), since they're being listed so close to the retail value, if I can't get a killer deal out of of them then I think i'm better off buying them brand new, which will come with warranty.
