Ok so i ran into another dilemma about what i want to do. Basically i have this system right now: C2D Quad Q6600 MSI P31 MOBO (crappy, worst mobo ever) 8800gt 550w BFG psu Xfi extreme gamer sound card 2gb gskill ram
I can save myself a ton of money if i keep the q6600, upgrade my motherboard to an ASUS RAMPAGE, Buy a 4890(or equivilent) And throw in 2 more gigs of ram. My questions is will i see that much of an improvement in games if i build a new Phenom 2 955 system? Said an done im saving myself about $400 if i go this route. If getting a new cpu is only gunna gain me 10 frames then i dont think it is worth the extra $$$.
What do you think?
More aboutsystem upgrade q6600
a new cpu won't gain you many fps, a new gpu will. and 2 more gigs of ram wouldn't hurt either. if you do get a new gpu, you might want to upgrade the psu as well.
I think i might just do it this way, plus that p31 wasnt stable over 3.0ghz, so with a good mobo i should be able to oc it higher, in a way its like having a new cpu haha
