Hello OC.net

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have recently taken up a hobby with refurbishing older PC's. It all started when my little brother-in-laws, they're 12 and 14, wanted to play League of Legends whenever they came to my house. Well my Ghost Pro 002 has no issues, but we needed another PC seeing as they both at the time shared a laptop I bought them for Christmas. Long story shorter, I started watching some YouTube videos, for best bang for your buck and I saw the Core 2 Duo benchmarks for LoL with older GPUs. So I check craigslist and bought a Optiplex 775 E8500 fro $50 and then realized my mistake with the SFF cases come low profile GPUs which are more expensive and always some generations behind. So I listed the Optiplex and sold it.

Fast forward to the first restoration and I modded a Dell Inspiron 545s, what can I say I liked the slim look, from a E7400 to an Xeon E5450. I purchased a GTX 745 off eBay for $55 shipped and bought the blue front faceplate (I heard it makes the computer faster).

Which brings me to why I've joined y'alls forums. I am seeking advice on my next build, I recently picked up 2x EVGA 750i SLI FTW motherboards, with Q6600's, and some 1066MHz memory (one board had 4GB, the other had 8GB), as well as an old Antec case.

I'm in the Dallas, TX area and have been surfing hardwareswap, and craigslist for SSDs or another case for the 2nd PC but was wanting some expert advice on whether or not I should swap out the Q6600 for a X5470 (I just got one off eBay for $40, I was going to upgrade the Dell 545s) or go with something else.

Please if anyone can point me to a relevant thread that would be great.

Welcome to OCN.
As far as a thread...search would be your best option. Might be best to start here and see what you come up with. If nothing then make a thread about it.
