Q6600 upgrade to??? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Sandybridge definitely. Z-68 chipset motherboard. As far as which CPU, it's up to you. K Series if you intend to overclock.

I went from a Q6600 to Core i7 2600k in a MSI Big Bang Marshal and couldn't be happier.

If you don't intend to overclock, H67 chipset in the motherboard. Z series chipsets are for the K series intel chips. Combined with the Lucid Virtu technology, it will allow you to combine a dedicated graphics card with the graphics built into the cpu chip but also allows u to overclock instead.

Hope this Helps

my cards aren't going to be worth much. i can't find hardly any decent 775 boards any more. i have been thinking about upgrading for quite some time and now that my mobo is dead its the perfect time.
