For gaming, just get a dual core now (e8400) and overclock it to 3.6Ghz+. There is no point in having a quad core for gaming untill games come out that actually use them (and no, Crysis does not utilize quad core) and dual cores get higher (over)clocks and thus are better for games at this time. By the time multipe (4+) cores are being used in games (and even then, your CPU will probably not bottleneck you yet) Nehalem will be out and I would buy a nice Nehalem board at that time. 8GB is nice, but only needed if you wan't to disable the pagefile in Windows for faster loadtimes, otherwise it's useless to have over 4GB memory.

About the harddisks, just get a pair of Seagates 7200.11 @ raid0 will be all the speed you need for gaming.

Also, I stand by my point to wait for the new GPU's coming out (nVidia or ATI) and get one of those if they are as good as promised (read; IF), so you can upgrade in the future. The 9800GX2 still doesn't work flawlessly in quad-sli, so an upgrade from 9800GX2 is useless at this moment (and nVidia hasn't been to keen on getting quad-sli to work properly, so who knows when and if it ever will; correct me if I'm wrong here).

he would be best getting quad now as more and more programs are utilising it and it is becoming the standard and he will get great overclocks from the extreme this system would keep him going for a long while yet. and i still think he should stick with cards that aere out now unless the new ones are the same price for better performance

p.s. the specs for that are no better than the ones we picked out

The fact is that for gaming at this time: clockspeeds > multi-cores and since this seems to be a gaming rig, going for a dual core now is the better option since the default clocks are higher and they overclock better.

The new GPU's are already being listed in shops as we speak and will be released in 5 days. He should at least wait for some game-benchmarks to come out and see what the price/performance ratio is on these cards.

P.S. try editing your last post instead of double posting.

This is exactly what I want. As you stated it will keep me going for awhile and not have to upgrade. I like your style of thinking ocZcc
