So is this one.

What happened to just getting an 8600GTS? x1950's aren't worth it unless it's the PRO or XT IMO...

I'm going to get the Pro and I changed the memory to 1 stick of 1GB so I can just pop another stick in there.

Now that I think about it if I want to do that then I'm not going to overclock my CPU so I'm going to get an X2 3800+ that will save me $6.

I think I'm almost done, going to ask mom if that sounds good and if it does they awsome!

Forgot, any last ideas?

You should be able to run most games on high now but not crysis when it comes out. You would need a 8800 or a 2900 for that.You should upgrade to that memory I posted.You need good memory to get a high OC on that 3600.You can get another one later.Also you are paying $51 for that case with the shipping and not using the PSU.Look at some other cases with out the PSU.

Ok I'll look at other cases. And will the X1950Pro play Crysis on default settings in DirectX 9 Mode or maybe max?

The XT is. The Pro is getting pretty stiff competition though in the form of 8600's if you overclock.

YES. Even if not the difference is so small you won't notice. Not even close to being worth $30 even in a build that's not counting pennies. The $30 would be way better spent to getting the Intel combo.

X1950Pro made for DX9 so I'll go with that.

The 3600 is a better choice because it's cheaper, OC's better,65nm vs 90nm for the 3800 and will run cooler and use less electricity.
