Win an AMD Trinity APU! - Page 34  

post #331 of 676
When do you next plan to upgrade your Desktop PC?
A: Within the next month. I am constantly upgrading something.

What do you look for when selecting a processor upgrade?
A: Other: I look for a processor that I can have fun with. IE: overclocking, benching, etc... All modern processors can do the everyday stuff, so I want something that I can fiddle with thumb.gif
It's so little!

When do you next plan to upgrade your Desktop PC?
A: For my primary desktop rig, I will contemplate a GPU upgrade when AMD and Nvidia bring their next generations to market. A year or so after the GPU is upgraded, I'll start looking around the CPU market and decide whether the price/performance curve indicates that an upgrade will be worthwhile.


What do you look for when selecting a processor upgrade?
A: Depends on the need and the budget. My wife's desktop (a C2D-based system) works fine for her needs, and our HTPC (Athlon II-based) runs like a champ in performing its function. A Trinity APU would be a no-brainer upgrade for the HTPC, where low heat and quiet computing are top priorities; but in my wife's rig, an APU would have to be CrossFired with a discrete GPU to allow her to work with her graphics programs.

post #340 of 676
When do you next plan to upgrade your Desktop PC?
A: Within the next 6 months. I usually wait for tax returns and then look at building a new system

What do you look for when selecting a processor upgrade?
A: Performance first, looking at benchmarks and reviews as well as their overclocking ability. The latter I don't usually do unless it's to get the most performance out of it as possible for certain situations. Price is definitely a factor and weighs heavily into my decision. Like many others, it comes down to the best bang for my buck as well.
