    Alright guys, I'm stuck. My intentions were on grabbing an i7, but with Westmere coming in latte 09 the current socket type is going to be outdated seemingly quick. So I have my eyes on some parts.

    Zalman 9700
    8Gb OCZ Memory
    Opinions on
    e7200 vs e5200
    Sli up 2 9800gt for CS4 Cuda or just go with a GTX 260 216 edition.
    The 9800gt in SLi seems to perform better than the 260.216 in benchies.
    I'm running @1920x1200 so both should handle it well.

    What's the opinion you guys are getting here?

    That's what I figured :dunno:
    I also am settling on the 260.216 since the new 55nm is out.
