To Build or not to build? Comments appreciated.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Current I have what's shown in my sig. I've already splurged on:

-ocz 850w psu ($86)
-2500k ($180)
-SSD ($180)

I'm just not sure how much an upgrade it'd be to go from q9550(which for some reason are still $300 at newegg) to a 2500k. Do you guys think the prices will drop much these coming holiday seasons? Or when ivy bridge comes out? I could just sell the PSU and CPU and use the SSD in my current rig. What do you guys think?

Depends on what you're doing with it to be honest. If you're Benchmarking or OC'ing the 2500K will definitely make a nice difference. If gaming, I could actually see your 460 perhaps being your bottleneck depending on games played. Your 700W PSU is more than adequate by the way, so that's $86 that could be spared. I personally don't anticipate prices dropping that much quite yet. Perhaps a bit with IB, but nothing dramatic for a few months after IMO. The SSD would go great in your current system, sure.... but I mean, hey.... let's be honest, on this forum I think it's all about bigger(sometimes smaller!), better, faster.

Keep 'em all!
