Since you posted this in the AMD section im sure you already made up your mind on the phenom II rig before the first reply . I still would personally choose a budget i7 rig over the phenom II but thats just me. Since you stated it was just for gaming the phenom II is a great choice, it just didnt save as much money compared to the i7 rig as i thought it would to make it a wise choice IMO.

p2 and amazing vid card would do more than core i7 cause cpu is not running the games nowadays, it is the video card.

That it is, I was running 6GB with my old X2 since it didn't OC anyway. Now on my 940 I'm only running 4GB with 2GB just sitting here. Still don't get close to maxing out the 4GB with Crysis on Very High.

I've said this multiple times in the thread, I need 6-8 gb of RAM for VMWare.

Well, I have the good feeling that I just spent about $800

DFI LP JR 790GX, 8gb Crucial Ballistix Tracers, AMD Phenom II 940BE, 2x HIS 4850 (black heatsink versions)

I think I am going to be in heaven for the next year

you'll enjoy it... but i personally would've waited for the AM3 945 cpu to come out and get an am3 mobo with DDR3 ram... to each their own i guess.
