I am switching my processor to a different motherboard and smaller case. I am salvaging parts from a 2 year build. On my current build I can play all games at max settings just fine. I dont see the point in getting a sandy bridge or new mobo just yet. Maybe in the next 2-3 years.
I can play games at 1920-1200 hdmi
I can play Mass effect 3 at max settings
I can play BF3 at high settings
I dont see a point in upgrading the mobo and processor just yet. My build can play any games that are out.
Yeah, it wasn't clear if this was something you were planning to build or something you already had.
