Since you are limited to a single card setup.. I'd spend money on a SSD. Newf August 9, 2009 12:03:11 AM Ditto. You likely won't notice the cpu change. You would notice an SSD though. You may also notice windows tweaks to speed up your system as well.

You have a nice motherboard anyways, might aswell use it and OC that E6750. Don't forget a good aftermarket heatsink if you plan going over 3GHz Mousemonkey a b à CPUs August 9, 2009 1:16:54 AM I reckon you would be better off getting a 22" 1920 x 1080 monitor, or a Q9550 for more cores but only if cheap enough, then again with the arrival of i5 imminent ...
