my computer is in much need of a few new components,
i have an EVGA 680i Sli motherboard
Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.13Ghz
2x OCZ 1gb sticks of ram
an old graphics card, think its a 9400gt nvidia = max screen res is 1360x768 on a 37" lcd
And a thermaltake toughpower 750W PSU
was thinking about getting a quad core processor and 4gig of ram
and defiantly a new graphics card was thinking about 2x Nvidia gtx 260 in Sli don't know if two would be too much,
i have about 600-700 GBP to spend
just wanting to know any recommendations for new components as im abit of a noob
The nforce 680i does not support 45nm quad processors, so the Q9550 or any Q9xxx/Q8xxx processor upgrade is not an option.
The E8400 C0 can be used with a BIOS update, but I'm uncertain if the E0 revision is usable.
If your aiming towards a quad, the best you can get is the Q6600 which is hardly worth the cost.
+1 to the GTX 260 idea. Though IMO, it may be more worthwhile to buy an aftermarket cooler and overclock the processor instead of buying a new CPU.
