I see. yeah cpu upgrade would be nice, i dont think a good enough boost will be provided with the oc/
Yea, the cache is awful and the cpu is out of date. OC didn't help much on this cpu.
Think a Core 2 Quad Q8300 would do a good job? (the the intel i processors are a bit to much and the old quads are still great!) its .5 Mhz faster then the cpu i have at the moment, but it's quad and not dual core so those extra 2 should really make up! (And no anoying micro lags) With this and my Gts 250 should be able to play most games at maxed settings. I also plan to go sli with a 460 soon so i can play the new crysis 2.
