Hey all, in about 2 months or so once i get my taxes back i have something on my agenda. I was planning on getting a new TV since they are so cheap now (my 42inch plasma cost 1400 in 2006, now i can get a 55inch for 900-1000 ), but i started wondering is my CPU starting to get a little to out of date?
I have a i7 920
12 GB 1600 mhz ram
gtx 670 OC
128 GB SSD
What do you all think? obviously with the video card i like to play PC Games. Should i invest in a new CPU and Mobo, or should i be fine for another year or so? If i dont upgrade is it gonna hurt me with future games coming out this year?
I actually have the h100, but my i7 was from a batch that runs hot, i have it OC'ed to 3.2ghz and with the h100 it runs at 37-40 C idle, under load mid and high end 50's. So i dont think i can really push this one up to 4ghz with safe temps.
Im not having any problems gaming also... i just wasn't so sure if theirs gonna be a big new thing coming up that would require a better CPU for me to run, but guess not. As of now i can run all my games i play at ultra / high whatever graphics.
Thanks for all the replies i think ill just go with new TV, maybe if CPU / Mobo drop even more in price in 2 months i might be able to afford both Whenever i mention to wife about upgrading computer i get the look so.. lol.
