More about will good decision
  1. DX58SO heard bad things about this board
  2. Go for an i5 or Phenom Quad and the money saved on the motherboard and CPU should pay for a decent card. If you can't get the 5870 go for a 5830 or 5850 and get a second one later (make sure you get a board that can run 2 cards at least 8X if you do this).
  3. ^+1, make sure it's a Phenom II quad core not the original Phenom series.

    Hi
    I say that you keep your current core 2 duo system and buy a good cpu cooler and also that radeon 5870. overclock the hell out of that processor and i think then things will be fine for gaming. Hope i helped
  5. how can i over clock core 2 due....coz my mobo do not support this oc feature...
  6. will hd 5870 provide go0d proformence with core 2 due as on i7 930?
  7. and i have no idea about mobos......if DX58SO is not a good mobo then please tell me which one will suitable with i7 930 processor.... is there any cheaper mobo then dx58so.....with sLi or crossfire support?

    dude actally i have no experience about phenom........is it better then i7 930....
    and why you said to get i5?
    will it better choice as compare to i7?
    please help me to select better one....
  9. i5 is very suitable for gaming, but a i7 is more for video encoding, or recource utalising programs...

    you say that i7 is not go0d for gaming as compare to i5......
  11. The i7 is better than the i5 at everything but an i5 is just as good for gaming its cheaper, the motherboards are half the price, and you save 1/3rd on the RAM. An i5 with a 5870 is a mile better than an i7 even with a 5850.
  12. thats what i mean... because you dont spend as much on the i7 with a i5, the rest of the money can go to buying a better GPU or somthing else...

    ohhh sorry
    i forgot one thing to write that...... any of gf card like hd 4870 or gts 250 would be temporary.....means i'll buy hd 5870 or hd 5970 within very next six months after getting a core i7.......
    plz tell me that in this situation the hd 4870 or gts 250 would alright just for 5 to 6 months????
  14. From performance point of view, the 4870 is better than the GTS 250.It should last for 5-6 months.
  15. thanks for your reviews....... it means i shoud upgrade my pc .....core 2 due to core i7......


    ""but some said that core 2 due e7500 is also good for 2010 games like alien vs predators ...but it only depends on gf card and ram......"" they only advised me to get hd 5870 or greater and also get gaming ram....

    is it true? would it better?
  16. As I said before (in different words) the i7 is overkill for gaming save the money and get an i5 with a better card.
