Once I get Windows 7 64 bit on this friday, I'll test it with GTA 4 and other games and see how it goes.
But right now i'll probably upgrade in mid Nov. or earlier.
well if u are going to get a new mobo for intel u might as well get a new for AMD, they are cheaper as well, get an AM3 with a Athlonx4 610 and DDR3 RAM total can be around 200 USD, that Intelis probably 350 USD
Patriot - Extreme Performance Viper Series DDR3 6GB (3 x 2GB) PC3-12800
Keep in mind with AMD or non socket 1366 intel you still add in pairs
right now only some xeons and i7-9xx series supports triple channel memory
Ran the Arma II Benchmark tool in their demo and had the following:
Very High settings - 1680 x 1050 res - 18 fps High Settings - 1680 x 1050 res - 21 fps
Was expecting a bigger jump going from VH to High.
yea, your right about the memory will go w/ 4gb for now or 8gb well se
What were your AA/AF filter settings?
Not sure just selected high & very high. At work now so I can't check
you still might be GPU limited on most games.
maybe sell your video card and try out a radeon 5850 .. then see if you need to upgrade processor.
and honestly the I5 is and upgrade but unless you overclock too its not amazing.
you might be better off with a value build off a phenom II quad core.
also when I played wow I lagged with a 3.6ghz q6600 .. it was just wow lag,
I'd also go from 80fps solo farming to 20fps in 25m naxx/ulduar
