    It should do well I like those apollo cases they are nice.   I am running a Q-6600 in my build and a 4850 ati card run run every thing maxed even on fallout-3.  Looks like a nice build should give you several years of enjoyment.  : )

    THats good to know, I was actually kind of worried that I wouldnt be able to max it out in a few places, but from the sounds of things I dont think I have much to worry about(aside from siege). Anyways I got the sli capable MB just incase I need further graphic fidelity in the future.

    It was a real toss-up for me to choose the 9800 card or the 4850 ati card. Had a 8800 gts 320 m.b. card in but was only doing so-so on fallout 3 . A local store had a good sale on the ati card. It raised my settings from high to Ultra High changing the card out and going to vista as well. If you are running vista on your new build there are some good guildes out on how to turn off all the crap running in the background to make vista run very well. www.techpowerup.com has some guildes in there forums that i have found very helpful. Also a good place to get overclocking tools.

    Its an awsome setup no doubt, but.... you got 2 years then you will want a new graphics card when the Larabee comes out.

    Funnily enough I have been waiting for DHL to deliver my new PC today as well. No sign yet & their 'next day' tracking system doesn't seem to work, but never mind I suppose that just means I will get it tomorrow.

    I am really looking forward to being able to play WAR RvR without things turning into a slide show.

    I was thinking about going with a phenom setup for a while as well because there pretty inexpensive but I decided to go with the C2D because of their overclock ability, which I do intent to take full advantage of

    The wait is horrible, I almost wish I had done next day shipping if I had the money lol!

    i'd say very well!! haha, you don't even have to ask about that anymore.. the only thing i noticed is the e7300 c2d.. why not make it quad core for a montrous performance?

    With an I7 you need all new components.  At new main ones. New Motherboard and new ram.

    The i7 doesnt use FSB technology anymore so your older mb and ram wont work for the i7,s

    Ive been trying to do an i7 build on budget but cheapest i came to is around 1800 buck s and up.

    expensive for now. i might wait a yr to do one.

    I haven't played anything at max settings since waay back in the days of quake 2 or doom 2 (which was like back in 95ish)

     

    ever since quake 3 or doom 3 I was able to do average settings

     

    these days I play everything bare minimum naked settings...

     

    so don't feel too bad :)

     

    well i might as well post my pc specs in this post edit:

    AMD +3500 athalon (single core)

    radeon x1600

    1gb ddr ram

    200gb 7200rpm hd

    400 watt psu

    stock sound card

    ethernet mbit port

    oh well, atleast the monitor is nice, 22" LCD (although i get green dots that show up whenever i alt + tab out of a game)

    this baby ran me like $500 and that was only like 3 years ago.

    pretty decent for someone on a budget, but you should get a faster monitor. to get a 2ms around the same price though you might have to drop to a 19 but thats still awsome for any game.
