Hi all, just wanted a few opinions about upgrading. Ive read around the forums and have pretty much settled on the X58 chipset as i am a gamer so may want to go SLI when my wallet allows, whats the general consensus among you guys about X58 vs H/P55? I should say upfront i do play games and the fact im going midrange at the moment is simply because thats all i can afford. I want the best future proof combo when im able to spend more.
Anyway heres what ive picked out, my budget is no more than $650 for a new CPU, MOBO and RAM;
To future proof your system go for X58... P6T is a GREAT motherboard and GREAT for overclocking too, not to mention the CPU which is the same (good by itself and great for OCing)
I just want to add that you may want to take this GIGABYTE MoBo in consideration:
