I have what I believe to be a pretty good system and after the specs, I'll pose my question.
q6600 at 3.4Ghz
ASUS p5Q turbo
Mushkin 4gb DDR2
Gtx 285 OC'd at 732/1667/1272
So, pending quantum computing making a commercial debut in the next 2 yrs, I don't think I really need to upgrade. But, as you are the experts, where will I start to see significant issues with my components? I log quite a few hours with CoD MW2, SC2, Splinter Cell Conviction, etc. Thanks!
It is alittle, but Intel is moving slow, we are looking at late 2011 for Sandy Bridge...
There might be a stealth launch of some kind, but other then that it is AMD doing bulldozer, and I dunno that projected launch date on that..
^ Actually, Sandy Bridge LGA1155 (replacement for LGA1156) is slated for release this quarter. Probably in or before December. What you are talking about is the replacement for LGA1366 which is which is LGA2011, this should be out in Q3/Q4 2011. Bulldozer should be out in Q2 or Q3.
