I did quite a lot of research in terms of getting right hardwares. But after reading through the blogs, forums, etc. I'm not sure if I should upgrade my system or to just wait out and build the new system instead.
Anyways my current set up is
Mainboard : Asus P5N-E SLI
Chipset : nVidia nForce 650i SLI SPP
Processor : Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2400MHz
Physical Memory : 2048MB (2 x 1024 DDR2-SDRAM )
Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT
Hard Disk : Hitachi HDT725032VLA SCSI Disk Device (320GB)
DVD-Rom Drive : HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N
Monitor Type : Samsung SyncMaster - 27 inches
Network Card : NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller
Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.01.2600 Service Pack 3 (32-bit)
DirectX : Version 10.00
I want to play WoW and possibly D3 when it comes out, and SC2 at a maxed out graphics without any hiccups.
Since I have the quad already, I was thinking to get 4-8 gigs of RAM and a new video card like 460 GTX or something equivalent to that. My mobo and the system is pretty outdated and only takes ddr2. How fast are ddr3 in comparison?
My ultimate question is does it really worth the money to upgrade at this point of time? and if i do so, how long the overclocking the system will last on me before i need to switch to a new system? Would any of hardwares bottle neck and limits its functionality?
PLEASE HELP!! I will really appreciate y'all help and just let me know if you need any more info.
