The GPU is certainly the weakest link in your system...but your stutters may be more to do with your slider settings and cfg entries.RegardsJim

I have a very similar setup, but have a Xeon 3060 (similar to 6600E) and the 8800GTS 640MB...very nice zippy setup. I currently have 2GB of mem, but am probably going to up it to either 3 or 4 GB so my add-on's have room to breathe as well.Running Vista 32Bit home premium.
