Then you should wait. Rumors have been going that ATI will release the 4890X2, which come in both 2GB and 4GB versions (4GB is seriously overkill and probably super overpriced).

Crossfired 4890s have been tested and reviewed to be faster than a single GTX295 in many games, so a 4890X2 should kick the GTX295 upside down. But I wouldn't think Nvidia would sit and watch. They've been actively 'countering' ATI with their very own versions of the similar cards (GTX275 vs HD4890, both released on the same day and both have very similar performances). When the 4890X2 is released, I should expect Nvidia to work on their 3-series doubly hard (or they might even release the 3-series on the day of 4890X2's release).

I just hope the 4890X2 is much cooler than the 4870X2. The 4870X2 is also known as 'ATI's flamethrower' or something of that sort. Made me laugh.

Anyway for your current rig,

I would say around 7.5 or so. Pretty old processor and video card, but still fine for casual gaming.

Anyway after you get the Phenom, I would say 7.8 because your video card will bottleneck you. Swapping the video card to at least a HD4850 and I would give you somewhere like 8.3 (your HDD is a little small, so getting a bigger one should bring you to 8.5).

Let me try this...

Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 (2.8 GHz, 1066FSB)
4GB DDR2 SD RAM at 800MHz
320GB SATA
Windows Vista Home Premium

No graphics card yet, looking for one though.

I can't rate your system if it hasn't got a graphics card

... unless you're running on integrated at the moment.

I agree with luke. This system sounds awesome what kind of monitor do you have? What the bus speed of your RAM? Have you over clocked your cpu? tell me some of the particulars and Ill let you know what i rate it at? SO far somewhere in the high 9's.

thanks bro, i'm currently using a 5 year old Dell 2001FP 20 inch LCD monitor 1600x1200 res, I paid $800 for when I bought it, it was top of the line back then, I will be getting a HP 1920x1200 monitor next month

i'm a noob when it comes to overclocking so i'm not sure if I will be overclocking anytime soon, my ram is only DDR3 1333, since I didnt plan to overclock I just got standard Ram
