Try and get a 1680x1050 monitor or better, anything below looks like crap tongue.gif
2GB will be enough for anything under 1920x1080 and not to heavily modified games.

you can set bios to [1600], or [400] depending on which option(choice) you have.....set cpu [ratio] or [multi] or [multiplier], depending on which option(choice) you have to 9......also [cpu voltage] or [cpu vid] se to 1.4v.....memory speed, or [ram] se t to [800].......this should give you 3.6Ghz with 1600MHz FSB.......boot into windows and run some games/apps.....if everything is ok and no crashing, go back into bios and lower [cpu voltage] a little bit......keep lowering until crash.....once you crash, raise your voltage up slowly until everything is ok

Did you already buy the Q9550?

If so then I guess your stuck with it, but with that board even getting 3.6ghz might be iffy.

If I was you I would sell the entire platform. I got my i7 920 and mobo and ram (not used anymore) for $280 on ebay like 3 months after sandy bridge dropped and about the time intel finally got fixed boards on the market. Before that I had my Q9550 @ 4.25ghz and was pretty happy with it, but when I tried to SLI with my pair of GTX470's on a 780i board that would only let me get 3.4ghz stable the SLI performance wasn't worth it. Not only was the EVGA 780i board (or nvidia chipsets at the time in general) was so bad with 45nm quads that it made it pointless to have a higher end board. Luckily I still had my UD3P (best overclocking 775 board) what I tossed my Q9550 back into and used as a HTPC. Going to this i7 was a huge upgrade SLI wise.

You can find people selling i5 2500k+board for pretty cheap these days if you do some looking. The price you would have to pay for a used Q9550 would alone make up for half the cost of a used combo i5 2500k rig.

GTX670 is a great card if you want to get one, though 2GB of v-ram is kinda low these days. Maybe look into the 3GB GTX660ti as well, if your looking to use that card for the next 2-3years.

Edit: At your current Rez 2gb is more then enough, but really think about a 1080p monitor. you can pick them up for 100 bucks and it is a world of difference.

I think this year to buy some better video card for gaming.This gtx 470 work on all game fine not on high but on medium but problem is this card is werry loud an hot.So i think if i buy a beter video card that i play 2-3 years with this system than i chanche complete Pc.
Problem is my mother borad because i can get on this mother board just 775 chips.So i3,i5,i7 do not match on my mother board.

i m happy with q9550 for now, just looking a best Video card for this chip and that will be no botllenck smile.gif

I would get the GTX 770, so all you will need is a better CPU since the 770 will keep you happy for years to come.

I would OC the Q9550 to 3.6-4.0 if you can, at those speeds, it's close to a 2500K Stock. Least on gaming where the GPU is the hardest hit.

I don t know how to overclock but i will find someone who will.biggrin.gif

Youtube has a bunch of grate video's. Just type in the name of your mobo (your motherboard not pc biggrin.gif) and type overclock after it. You should get a couple results.

Are you happy with the performance of the 470? Or is it just a heat and noise issue? If so then why not just replace the cards heatsink, its allot cheaper. You could put the extra money to a new monitor. Does your case have proper cooling? Generally speaking good cooling means you have 1 more fan pushing air in then their is pulling air out, or one more fan pulling air out then their is pushing air in. Is their a fan feeding air to the card? Is their dust and cables hanging about your case? Is so then getting a new card could mean you experience the same problems.

You should see some performance improvement with a 670. Your q9950 will probably bottleneck it in a couple of a games, meaning it might hold back the full potential of the card but thats not really a big deal because you will still get more FPS then if you got a less powerful card like a 660ti witch is only one step away from the 670. CPU intensive games will probably be the only games you experience a small bottleneck, games such as arma and GTA IV.

If you would like to see the card in action

A q9950 with a 660ti/gtx670 should be fine for the next couple of years.
