Alright right now i have a amd athlon 64 x2 6000 and 8600gt.. my scores are pretty terrible when i benchmark.. should i replace with 940 black addition and 9800gtx seeing as this is most i will spend? would scores improve enough? I would like to play on my pc until ps3 version is released but if this will not help, I wont have a choice but to wait for ps3.

sorry im not very technical.. so any advice would be great.

This will work (not GREAT) but will work, if you're just going to use it to tide you over til the PS3 release.

*edit*
I meant the planned upgrades you listed would work.

Don't spend less than roughly ~$200 on a new video card or you're going to want to replace it immediately. Don't get me wrong, the 9800 GTX is a good card, but you can do much better with a bit more money to invest.

A GTX460 seems the perfect fit for $200 -/+

Pretty sure the phenom II 940 is AM3 and will not work with your athlon mobo. :/ In regards to the video card, you can run the game fine in 720p with it. My 9800GT (not GTX) is scoring a 2500 or so with an old E5200 Dual Core.

It sure is, I stand corrected. Then yes I think it's a great budget decision to go for it.

The difference between a 9800 GTX and a GTX460 is $60.

You can get 9800 gtx+ below $100 on ebay. I can tell you people in beta have been able to run it with 8600gt or the 8800 gtx. The minimum requirements is really only 9600 gt. Your processor is also fine. I currently use 9800 gtx+ and it runs very smooth except some areas in town that are busy.
