Pretty damn good. But you (and I) are going to be wanting to upgrade from that 9800 soon... It's getting old, fast.

I'm wondering if it's worth the extra $50 to get the 1gb GTX 460 instead of the 768mb. Do you know?

it's probably worth it, the extra memory will future-proof it at least a little more, and increase the performance on high anti-aliasing.

Hmm, I do love me some anti-aliasing. Guess I'll be saving up for a little while longer, then.

How is that processor Chris? is it worth the money. I've been looking at it everytime I think of a new build. I've heard great things about it, just wanted to know if there's anything that isn't?

it is so worth the money. you really can't beat the prices that AMD is giving. If you want to really future proof your system the six core is the way to go. The Phenom x4 965 black edition is a TAD better for gaming, but not by much. If you really want an amazing CPU, go for the 1090t (black edition) over the 1055t. But really, it's amazing what AMD is doing right now. If you want to upgrade to it, there is no reason that you shouldn't get it. It's hands down the best bang for your buck.
