After all of this I don't think I am going to need an 8800GTX or Ultra, I think an 8600 or 8800GTS will be ok for me but I am behind the times with computer parts now
Well, this is what I'm thinking.........
The P5WD2-Premium is a kickass motherboard, I have one in my 2nd rig and I will never get rid of it. Now, there's not that much gaming done on that rig except for when my nephew uses it for UT2K4 online playing and it's got a 6800 GS as well. And it plays lots of other games too, FEAR lags at anything above 1024x786.
So, since that you multi-task and not a hard core gamer, I'd say a Pentium D 945 (@ 3.40gzh) and easy to overclock to at the very least of 4.20ghz (http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=112948
) on stock Vc. Or with a little more luck and a Tuniq Tower 120, a 4.51ghz is also easy (http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=110762
Otherwise a P35 and E6400.
