He wants to upgrade his rig, so am considering suggesting these upgrades.
4GB more of that same memory
core 2 quad Q8400 (2.66ghz)
but I am concerned that his memory might become a bottleneck. I'd rather not make him buy a whole new mobo+mem unless he has to though.
Anyone know if this mobo+mem will bottleneck these new parts?
edit: also I won't be overclocking anything for him, he lives a few states away from me so if anything became unstable over time I wouldn't be able to get over there to fix it, so is the 2.66ghz quad enough a good enough upgrade over the 3ghz duo core?
