My System Specs


I'd stick with the X4 if you're into multitasking. Having a proper quad-core will do wonders, rather than counting on being able to unlock a X3 720.

Video card wise, I'd serious consider the HD4890. It's typically cheaper and performs nearly spot on with the GTX275.

PSU, definitely no need for 1KW. Look at the 750W range IMO. Leaves you enough headroom for any GPU upgrades in the future. Typical recommendation is the Corsair 750TX.

For the RAM, I think Patriot stuff is the cheapest, though that OCZ stuff should do fine too.
