what if i upgrade just the motherboard to a AM3+ and DDR3 1600 ram, would there be a noticeable performance increase?
that would help and getting a phenomIIx4 is also a great help. sorry that athlon is not all that great . .
but get the mobo and ram first. see what happens and maybe by that time piledriver will be close to getting released and see if the PII or PD would be a better upgrade.
