God.. Why... Bottleneck this, bottleneck that.. The CPU isnt going to play uber role in the fps unless you have a peice of crap cpu.. Which anything you can get a 7800GTX with itsnt really going to be a poc. The dual core will easily OC to FX-57 speeds, and hey look, he'd have 2 fx-57's at 2.8.. 4800+ is just better all around.

And you're willing to burn $100+ on saving a little time? Seriously, how often so you burn DVD's? (removed)

2 Raptors in RAID0 for the OD/progs/games and what ever you wnat after that for mas storage

Your came about bottlenecking simply isnt true. If you would take the time and read this article you can come to no other conclusion other than CPU bottleneck is a reality.
