    In gaming computer you can use nvidia GeForce GTX 480 and intel Desktop Board DP55KG use. You can use 4 GB ram for gmaing pupose.

    That is a very important point: not all games are bottlenecked by the same resource. Some are GPU-intensive. Some are threaded. Some are not.

    That would depend on your motherboard and memory, GPU and PSU.

    I've started this thread on Tomshardware.com but the question was never really answered. My budget for this build is pretty high, but at the same time I don't want to spend 1000 bucks on a processor. I would greatly appreciate the info. And before everyone gets started I am the biggest noob in this forum.
    Have you checked their monthly Gaming CPU guide?

    3000-4000 is a joke. u dont need to pay more then 1k tops. idk what your looking at. Go with the I7 or the new amd x6 if you want a good gaming machine. Then go with over 4 gigs of ram good heatsink and fan. Go with a corsair psu or maybe ocz. Dual core might be better in gaming. Its really the video card that matters. I just built an i3 machine for 420 off newegg with built in i3 video i have the 530 the video is good for regular browsing and java games but wont be good for intense games. dont get the i5. Amd and intel are good but intel runs cooler

    I was going to use the 530 in my latest build but went with the AMD Phenom™ II X6 1055T Processor & Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H Motherboard Bundle Combo for $284.99 at Frys online. I also purchased the 8GB Corsair 1333mhz DDR3 Dominator kit with heatsinks and fans that work great with it.

    If you want to spend a lot on a pc, the i7 cpus are a bit faster than the Phenoms in cpu demanding games. I would get three 24" monitors to go with your two 5970, a big SSD drive, and an i7 930 overclocked to 4.0GHz, enjoy.
