How much improvement would a

Intel Core 2 DUO E6550 2.33GHz
ATI 1950 Pro 512MB

Athlon 64 X2 5600
NVIDIA 8800 GTS 320MB GDDR3

Go with the C2D and the 8800GTS. I just built a rig with an E6750 and the 8800 GTS and I love it. If you can afford it, bump up to the 6750 over the 6550. It has a higher FSB and (I believe) twice the L2 cache.

Thanks. I can not afford the E6750 unless I opt for a cheaper graphics card (I presume 2 ATI's would not equal a 8800GTS?)

8800GTS does however seem like an superb card.

It is. In my opinion is the best card for the price on the market right now.

Newegg has the 6750 for around $200. Can't remember what the 6650 is going for right now..
