I am working on a new build (this will just be cpu, ram and mobo). Everything from the computer minus those components will be reused as there really is no point to upgrading them at the moment. I mainly play games(WoW, Cod 4, Crysis, etc) and do design work(AutoCAD, Pro Engineer, Micro Station). First off this system is intended to be an AMD system just like every other system I have ever built. My past 4 or so builds have been on Abit platforms as I have had bad experiences with Asus. I looking to spend around $500-$600 on these upgrade with tax and shipping to Jersey. I have been doing a lot of research as of late to get up to speed on the quad cores, but I am having a heck of a time finding a board and ram that I like. (I have used Crucial Ballistix for years, and I am currently using OCZ platinum)
Thanks for the reply MrsBytch. The links have all been edited, and should all work now. I do have two 9600 Gt's, but one is in my backup computer. I do plan on doing an sli setup again. I have never been one for an Intel setup. I mean if there is a setup that is a significant increase over what I am planning and and somewhat near my budget, I may spring for that. What SLI boards would be recommended.
I believe I have made a decision on my final components for this little upgrade. I decided that at this time, I really don't need a quad core. If I find that I will need it for something, I can order a board and cpu. What does everyone think of this list?
