I'm getting a 775 rig soon, but not now, maybe in may or so.

The vid card is much more important. I've seen people with better cpu's than mine with 6600GT's with quite a bit lower aquamark3 scores than me, 775, dual core, it doesn't matter what. I get about 74,000 in aq3. My gf's rig with comparable cpu and everything but a 6600GT gets about 62-63,000. I don't think 775 means a whole lot for gaming, maybe some, but what vid card you have is by far the biggest factor. Of course you at least need a decent cpu behind it as well. The only weakness I see with 478 is that they won't release the better vid cards now on agp, and it's not because of any bottleneck with agp, it's marketing and them wanting you to buy an entire new system. Even someone with the best cpu around, if they had a 6600GT or lower, mine would still game better.

At the moment though there's no game I can't play, maybe not the highest on all settings, but pretty darn good though. If I put in a 7800GS, it would be even a little better. Still debating that one though, to get the 7800, and be good for a little longer than I otherwise would be, or just wait for a year and get a new system with pci-e. Maybe it will depend on the games that come out, and how my 6800GT does on them. Right now though it's just fine.

-edit, I hadn't really looked at many benchmarks for the 7800GS compared to a 6800GT, but now I've looked and it seems not worth it over my current card. I thought the performance gap was a little more, but now I see that the 7800GS isn't much of a jump up, the margin is actually pretty small. Small enough to make $300 not worth it at all anyway IMO, although maybe worth it for a 6600GT user.

I meant that if he had 775 he could up his vid card alot, my earlier post suggested that i was wrong when i said that he really only needed a proc upgrade.I also didn't think about the fact that he only has agp.
