In a couple of weeks time I am planning to build a decent gaming rig that can run all the latest games at decent settings. This is what I'm gunning for: There are a few items I have already and a few Items I will but but will need some input where I can get cheaper or advice to buy something else.
I want to build my system now since I just cant hold on for the new PENRYN to come out and I've been waiting a bit to long. So I want to configure somethings now so the only thing I have to get rid of is the Q6600 when i'm done or maybe I'll get a new mobo/Ram/CPU when the times comes around, well anyways this is my system.....
Just make sure you get the retail version of Vista so you don't have to buy a new copy when you trash (read: re-purpose) this rig and rebuild it in a year or two.
But seriously if your gonna upgrade to Penryn soon after its released, I just don't see the point in building such a high end rig right now... unless you got some really deep pockets (if you do, I could REALLY use an AMD 6000+ X2 ).
I am prolly wrong, but isn't the Penryn chips gonna require a different socket?
I was also thinking if i'm getting the Q6600 then there is no point in getting the Penryn, the dollars doesn't make scene. So if so Should i just stick with the q6600 for the next two years? Or get something like the E6750, which goes for around $185
