Looking at those parts, I'd say your graphics card would be the weak link, assuming you're a gamer. Pitbull30 June 6, 2011 6:51:30 PM Maybe the better question would be to ask if I am getting all I can out of my CPU? I just upgraded from a older phenom to this one. By upgrading the board and the DDR2 to DDR3 would it be a big difference or hardly noticeable?

Best solution megamanx00 a b V Motherboard June 6, 2011 7:21:26 PM I say wait a little bit for 990X and 990FX boards. ASUS has a sabertooth out that should support SLI, but it's about outside your price range ^_^. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I say wait for some cheaper 990X boards with SLI, then get new RAM and a second GTS250 to run in SLI. You will then be able to upgrade to Bulldozer and perhaps some better GPUs latter on. Pitbull30 June 7, 2011 12:23:27 AM Thanks for the replies. I was just wondering if I was limiting my performance or anything with the older board. Unless anyone else has any opinions I will hold off for awhile and mark this post solved in a day or two. Thanks again! geekapproved a b V Motherboard June 7, 2011 1:14:10 PM We don't even know if your a gamer or what you do with this computer, so it's hard to make ANY recommendation on ANY kind of upgrade.
