I'm thinking the larger cache and most likely higher clocks from an e8400 will pay off more than getting an 8800gt. I'm satisfied with my resolution and could probably run 4x or more AA right now and not take much hit too. What are you guys getting for VRAM usage on your cards and configs? Should I opt for the CPU or VC?
change the video cache in AoC settings to 150mb should give you a nice performance boost.
I dont think you should get a new cpu or vc. The price performance difference isnt that good from what you currently have. Wait for the next gen cards that are coming out.
