Hi guys not sure is this is the right section but at any rate i need some advice on weither or not it would be pratical to upgrade my componets at this time or if i should hole out untill the new processors are released in 2011.
Im using my computer for playing games. I tend to get the latest above 8.5 rated games that come out.
From the reviews ive been looking at it looks like for pratical sense i will be fine and able to run max settnigs in most games, but i couldent really find any good comparisions of my pc set vs a modern one.
My current build
O.S. Windows 7 pro
Case: Antec 900
CPU: E8400 over clocked to 4.050 stable with Thermalright 120 extreme cooler
Memory: 4 1gb 1066 ocz memory dimms.
Mother board: gigabyte ga-p35-ds3l
GPU: evga gtx 480
Power supply: ocz 1200 watt (designed for 2 graphics cards)
Hard Drives: 2 750gb samsung 3gb/s sata drives
What im looking to upgrade to
O.S. Windows 7 Pro
Case: haf x 942
CPU: i7-930, buy adapter kit to use my thermal right 120
Memory: 6gb ddr 2000 (only 20 dollars more than 1600 so meh)
Mother board: Asus Rampage 3
GPU: keep current gtx 480, and maybe add a second one down the road
I'd wait. Games are mostly GPU driven, so you shouldn't be having any issues right now. Besides, the Rampage is a waste of money when a board that's $160 cheaper is just as good (Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R).
