I just sold my PS3, and am looking to spend my profits. Right now, I've got $1200 to work with. I'm thinking about my options, and would like opinions. :)

1.) eVGA 8800GTX (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130072) + PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817703005)

or

2.) eVGA 122-CK-NF68-AR (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813188009)+ Core 2 Duo E6600 + CORSAIR XMS2 DDR2 800 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145590) + PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817703005)

Of course with the Intel rig, I'd still be using my 7800GT, which is getting pretty old, especially when it's pushing a 2007WFP. But how's an overclocked 3800+ going to be with a 8800GTX?

I figure I'll end up upgrading my processor around the holidays if I don't decide to go that route right now. But anyway, what do you all think? Vote for me!

Yep, the GTX. Your CPU is fine for now. With the GTX there will be some benefits that you can actually see.

Oh I wish. But yeah, I guess I'll be ordering a 8800GTX today. :)

EDIT: Just ordered it, along with the power supply!
