I am trying to decide whether a partial or complete rebuilt is necessary, I don't really need top of the line so if there's a sweet spot requiring minimal upgrades that would be perfect, however some future proofing would be nice too.
I've been considering just upgrading to a Q9** series quad proc as an easy upgrade since it doesn't need a new board, but obviously that leaves very little options for the future. I also thought of getting a new board and running another 9800GTX in sli, though that option is fairly limited too.
I'm open to be convinced of a full rebuild, my budget could probably be stretched to around $1400 or so. Basically what I'm asking is, should I just sell this system and have a serious look at The recommended build thread?
