Put something together for you OP, $520.93 w/ MIR. You get a great DX11 card, awesome AM3 dual core, DDR3, extremely good PSU, and a super fast HD.

oh my....

thank you so much!

i will be needing an operating system


EDIT: I really do have to stop and think...

pay around $650 /w a monitor for a current gaming rig...

or wait 5months to pay $2,700....hmmmmmmmmmmm

$650 wins!!! I'd rather keep upgrading, and save money!

haha

Good plan. You'll appreciate the money saved later . You can also just pop in a sweet AM3 quad core later down the road if you feel like upgrading without changing any other parts.

I might be willing to sell my extra copy of Win7 Ultimate, shoot me a PM if you are interested.

so do you think the rig linked can play COD42 maxed out on a 1680x1050 screen?

but would it be pointless to get a 1680x1050 22" @ 120hz?

won't i need to be playing COD4.2 @ 120+ fps to take advantage of such a great monitor for fps gaming?

look at my sig below, is it a major upgrade for me or what?

Option 1:
Try to unlock your dual core to a quad core, without waiting for anything.
Option 2:
Get new AMD 4-core or even 6-core when you get the money.
Option 3:
If your system has sky's the limit upgradeability (good case, etc.) then this is most certainly worth it for the time being.
If this works, it's win-win for you buddy
