    all are excellent for gaming. Your question should be : I am running this game, what GRAPHICS card and memory should I have?

    Why waste money on a new CPU when you already have a awesome one as it is. I am with joyful_winner, you should just get two 8800GTs and put them in SLI to upgrade your system. No need to get a different CPU.

    yeah i just like to keep updated and gotten sick of it and SLI, crossfire uses more outa of each gpu than SLI does and I'm also over geforce, I'm looking into buying two radeon r600xtx's one of the best gpus ever made

    You do know that if you go crossfire you will have to buy a new motherboard that supports it? If your over SLIing then just get one 8800GT or 8800GTX as these are some of the best cards around. You don't really need to SLI them to get awesome performance. Or just get one of the r600xtx's you mentioned and put that in your system.
