    AMD X2 5200 Dual-Core

    2 x 8600gt

    4gb ram

    With 64-bit windows vista basic, would this machine run fast, for gaming and multi taking (for me that is few internet tabs, messenger, live radio and windows live mail programme).

    Would it start up quick?

    Would everything work well with eachother?

    Thanks for any help!

    2 8800 GT would be lots better or even 1. and the # of programs u have starting at start up has more to do with how fast it will start than what the computer is.

    hmmm if i was to sell the two 8600gt's would that raise most funds towards a 9600gt or maybe even 9800gtx?

    Now I think best price/performance cards are 9600GT, 4850 and 8800GT.
