Re: Crysis/gaming upgrade Help
If you can, you'd be better of waiting for the new cards in July. Currenty, the only single card that will cope at Very High settings is the 9800GX2. You could always go SLI with a pair of GTX's though.
E8400 is the one to go for IMO. As for the mobo, that's down to whether you wanna go SLI at any time. 780i if so, P35/X38 if not.
