my current motherboard will take the 955 or 965 no problem but im looking for an entirely new system even if it means digging deeper into my wallet.
other options that I have considered include: upgrade the processor and the video card of my current rig, or upgrade the motherboard processor and add another gtx 260 to my current rig which would require a power supply upgrade as well. The problem here is that at this point im, just some ram, a HD and DVD drive away from a brand new rig anyway, also im not sure about the gtx 260 sli and if its worth it over other options. Overall I'm not quite sure what the best move is at this point.
Also another gtx 260 can be had from unity electronics online for 117 w shipping
