    ok, but how many FPS do you think I'll get with an 8800GTS(320mb) with an AMD4200+ processor?

    Depends on your system and the resolution you run your monitor on. Anything 1280X1024 and under is ideal for the 8800GTS 320MB. With resolutions higher than that you'll run out of texture memory. I am not a big fan of the current DX10 video cards because I firmly believe, and this is my opinion, that they will not be able to handle upcoming DX10 titles. The 8800GTX/ULTRA will probably do OK, but anything under them is gonna take a beating. Wait for the next gen DX10 cards to come out is my advice.

    I want to crank my games up full blast. I don't want to run at anything below highest settings. will I be able to do that with an AMD 4200 and 2GB of RAM along with the 8800GTS 320mb card?

    Get yourself the 640MB version then if you want to play that way.

    If you are looking to play any games coming out this fall that way, then you will be forced to get a 8800GTX or 8800 Ultra since they are the only 2 Nvidia based cards that can run most anything maxxed out. THe ATI HD2900's are also extremely strong and are supoosed to be able to handle DX10 better, but until we have an actual native DX10 game there is no way to prove/test that.
