    sure it'll work. I would guess it'll score about the same as my rig in benchmarking. At stock settings, I score just over 15,000 in 3dmark06, with my OC's, I have scored as high as 19,870. I can play any game on very high settings at 1920*1200(Crysis, Assasin's Creed, CoD4).

    That is honestly the biggest run on sentence I think I have ever seen anywhere! Your old English teacher would faint!

    Your selections sound good to me. I think if you shopped around you wouldn't spend all of the $3100. What do you mean by "i want to use vista ultimate 64 bit so if i buy the full retail i should get both i think"? Are you saying that you think you will get the 32 bit and 64 bit versions? I'm curious to know the answer to that one too.

    When you buy the retail version of Vista Ultimate, I am pretty sure they supply both discs, 32 and 64 bit. If they dont, they do give information on obtaining the 64 bit no charge. You will still only have one license, so keep that in mind.

    I work at CircuitCity and half way remember last time i cracked open a retail Ultimate it had 2 dvds in it, one 32 and one for 64
