Just wondering what kind of set-up my fellow PC gamers are currently running.

My rig:-
E8200 C2D @ 3.2Ghz
ATI 3870 512MB
4 x 1 GB Corsair XMS2
500GB WD HD
19" Samsung 1440 x 900
Corsair HX 620W
Raidmax Aztec (yellow) case
Arctic Square Heatsink

Thinking of upgrading my graphics card in a few months once some of the new cards fall in price......maybe wait and see how the 4870X2 performs.

Windows XP Media Center Edition
Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 @ 2.13Ghz
BFG Geforce 8800GTS OC'd 320
250GB Hard Drive
2GB Ram

I'm thinking about upgrading it to Quad Core in Christmas and increasing the RAM to 3 or 4GB but I'm not sure so far I might upgrade the card instead since its starting to show its age a bit. Can't decide whether or not it is worth moving to Vista yet but I am happy with my machine and its miles better than the one I had in 2002! Piece of shit couldn't even handle water reflections on Half-Life 2! Thank god its broken and I don't have to use it again anymore!

It really depends on your budget......and if you have an AMD or Intel motherboard.

You can't really go wrong with a E8200/E8400 as far as gaming goes. The Q6600 is a popular Quad core and it OC's well too.

Yes I'm aware my CPU is a bottleneck and the 8800 is there since I got it really cheap, and if I change the CPU I need to get a new motherboard aswell, and I do not feel of going trough that process. And heck it does its job, it runs Crysis...and it looks good too. :O
