I am thinking about upgrading my rig I have been looking at the I2500k and x6 1100t, I mainly play games, video edit, and surf net. My system is running fine, but I have around $500 to invest in a new rig. Should I do a upgrade now or just ride this system a little longer.
Q9550 o.c to 3.8ghz,
8 gig ddr2,
128gb samsung 470 ssd,
4 samsung 1 tb drives
I would wait. If you are going to upgrade, the def bottleneck is that 4870. Look into a 6950 2GB or 560 ti if your PSU can handle it. Both are excellent GPU's. With that, you should be set for the big games like BF3!
