I recently upgraded my video card to a MSI Cyclone 460GTX 1gb. It got me thinking about upgrading my cpu. I am currently using an E6600 running at 3.2ghz on a Gigabyte P35 mobo. It seems to handle everything I throw at it but I was wondering if I should upgrade to a newer quad core cpu. I mainly use my PC for gaming.
+1 on not upgrading if it runs every thing fine. If your games are CPU bound, you are probably better off getting a AM2+ board with AM3 support + a Athlon II X4, this way you won't have to upgrade the RAM to DDR3, which should save you ~$100 over upgrading all three.
Thanks for all the replys. I am thinking I will just keep what I have for now.
I want to build a SLI rig next. I would have to get a new mobo, cpu and power supply to do that. If I am going to buy all three I mine as well build a new rig. I can always sell this one or give it to a family member.
