    Core2 with a 7800 GT

    or

    Athlon 3800 with 1900XT

    What would you do?

    Core 2 Duo with any video card makes more sense than anything else.

    For the best system, choose Core 2 Duo and a Nvidia card.

    I disagree. Intel has much more compatibility with ATI and Crossfire than Nvidia and SLI. Also, at the moment, ATI has the best cards out. Image Quality is better with ATI, and with the ever exploding 7900's shows Nvidia has been much too quick to rush stuff to market lately to compete.

    Core 2 Duo + ATI for the win.

    (All of this is mostly my opinion)

    ATI may have better VIDEO imige quality, but nVidia beats for Bang for the Buck Gaming IMO.
