The current performance with my SD 4000 @ 2.75Ghz is not too bad although I've hit the oc limit of my SD
Also, I know my GPU is being held back by the CPU. so I thought about a change to Intel

Do you play at 1024*768 or lower res without any eye candy?
Are you a bench freak?
If not just crank teh eye candies!!!
And the bootleneck will go away for ever.

AMD's first quad core implementation (FX-74) required an expensive dual socket motherboard. AMD's upcoming Barelona requires a dual socket motherboard. Intel's current quad cores and future Penryns will work fine in a typical 975x or 680i board.

I say ditch the Athlon and jump on the performance bandwagon. Check out how many enthusiasts make use of AMD systems in the Top 30 Graphics Benchmarking boards here.

I'm plotting the same jump (though mine will be a little more extreme, 64 3000+ to Q6600) but don't worry, you're not alone! I tried for a while to convince myself I could stay with AMD... but after research I just couldn't keep lying to myself. I really hope AMD comes back down the road, maybe my next computer will be AMD again
It's about time!

I would not skimp on the mobo....could lead to problems down the road...If money is tight then I would keep what you have any upgrate the GPU to
8XXX card...Or save up the money till you can get a better mobo..

No big performance boost, but you 'll be able to upgrade to Phenom X4 with the extra money you would spend on conroe.

Dual cores are good but Quad cores are the future, and Crisis/Alan wake etc confirm that.
And then once he gets the quad core, 8 cores will be the future...It is a nasty cycle...lol...Stick with Duel core....

If you sell the hardware you have now you could make the upgrade to a decent oc'ing mobo and RAM for £125 (if you sell your old hardware)

Due to the restriction on where I can get the parts from (most of the cash is in vouchers), I’ve got to get the parts from a single store. And the motherboards & memory they do aren’t the best. But hey, you have to start somewhere… and if it doesn’t perform as a gaming rig, I can still use it as a work-horse rig.

The memory is a 2GB (1GB x 2) Dual Channel kit from PNY (yes I know they aren’t the best). And the motherboard is an ECS PF5 Extreme LGA775 (I know ECS are not that well known).

Just a little side note.
If you can make a penryn to work on a 975 board I'll throw my SLi DLX outta of a window instead of throwing a Phenom X4 on it.
i don't try to convince anyone that current K8's are good or not I'm just trying to say that with 3600 and good sAM2 motherboard you have wider upgradabilty.

Totally agree with you, but with our beloved intel that wagon will stop very soon...
