Unhappy PC Upgrade Time

Well it's that time again where my pc is getting to dam slow to do Maya (and games ) so I have to start thinking about upgrading.

I was just after some advice. Mainly about good graphics cards and also on dual processors.

I'm interested to know what you guys think and if you can recomend any other bits that I should get for Maya and hig-end games.

This should be in the technical forum, however, good recommendation would be dependant on the price, but if you want the highend stuff, i'd say get a Dual Xeon or Opteron, and the latest Quadro FX. But wait, you did say games so I guess get the newest GeforceFX6800gt

That sound cool, it's one of those things I love to have done but never like doing myself.
