Kewl, let me know the results.

Its all abotu the price, and I've pretty consistantly have seen the Q6600's around the 4ghz range. And if I went with an E series it'll more than likely be the 8400, once again overall price is a factor.

Hey man I aint goin anywhere, itll just be another 1 to the collection. Ill probably wind up selling the DFI's or giving them to the folks or something. They really need an upgrade theyve got a 423 pin P4

Well... if you can, then I can only hope you see fit to share with us whatever you can.

pio: Please check your email. Contest information awaits your comment.

Upgrades: I've only one upgrade planned for this coming year. It won't be a platform move, simply because I personally don't see the need for it yet. I will wait until I'm sure that the performance leap is great enough (i.e., circa 30% at least faster than my present setup) to justify buying everything. No, the upgrade I'm alluding to is to further my self-education in this overclocking/performance computing lark.

I'm going to take my chips swimming sometime in 2009.

Txtmstrjoe, same here. The is the second Christmas where I haven't upgraded

I myself am waiting for a 50% jump in increase with the next build which I think is asking to much heh.

Well, with tech advancing like it is, I think we're in for a big jump by 2010.

According to the last projections I read, that's when AMD will be releasing their 12-core Magny Cours Opterons. And you, my friend, know what my plans are for those beasts.

Of course, if someone releases a Formula One simulation that absolutely required a platform upgrade sooner rather than my intended planned date of May 2010... I would reconsider.

Please check your PM box Joe. I think that pretty much sums up my opinions on what needs to be said .

@thinkerbell:
Check my sig. You wanted to know when I was ready to put that board up for sale. There ya go .

Yah I just want to be able to Play Warhammer online and handle Massive 400 person Battles without Lagging so badly that Character's actually vanish from my screen.

I know the biggest thing for me to look for Id have to say is RAM, and VRAM.

it is Hihgly possible that the 939 and DDR1 setup is completely limiting how the data can flow.

My computer can handle RvR for about an hour, afte rthat it starts to get a little choppy though I must say my computer runs the game lik e achamp at 1680x1050 with 2x AA and 16x AF (I cannot play an MMO without minimum of 2xAA)

I am pretty certain that if I can figure out the right settings and option's that the game itself prefer's that i could improve performance, bu I am just unsure, and the information found on other forums are not really for my system =(


As far as me building a new machine, I am broke.. I could consider an easy Build with intel, E8400 or overclock E7200, maybe the new GTX 260 216 55nm Sku and just find myself the Most ammount of Ram that I can get..

I would rather do a total new build that will be a considerable spead change as compared to my Opty, as it is a beast. just about 3 years old now.

I do prefer to go with AMD next time though, just not doing AM2+ seem slike a waiste of effort.

I'm a total ignoramus when it comes to games like Warhammer, but what are the usual causes of performance lag when it comes to a game like this?

I kind of doubt it, looking at what youve said it sounds to me like temps are an issue not your RAM. Theres no reason that it would play fine for an hour then all of the sudden start getting bad anomalies like you're saying.
As for the RAM, I know Pio has been able to get some of his sticks to run @ DDR2 timing so I kind of doubt that is your issue as well, unless you just dont have enough of it.
So, basically do this, get a can of that spray air crap, clean out every heat sink and fan. Make sure to get the GPU really well, sometimes its difficult to get all of the dust out of them.
Also, if you havent tried this already, take the side panel off your rig and see if your problems go away, if they do then you most definitely know its a heat issue.
Personally, the only time Ive ever seen performance drops like that were with my work computers, they never got blown out. I wish I couldve recorded a video of me blowing them out. I actually needed a dust mask because there was soo much. After I blew them out, lo and behold they worked A LOT better/faster.

Well I personally don't really know Warhammer...

However Crysis does very similar things to me. It plays just fine at Ultra settings (or Enthusiast for Warhead), and then after about 30-60 minutes or so, the framerates just slow down to a crawl...and eventually it becomes unplayable.

However that is Crysis for you . Hence why I am going SLI. I know the rest of my system can pull it off, so I know the issue for Crysis is me not having enough GPU power.

Again, I don't know what Warhammer even is, so this may be little to no help.

And yes, I was able to run both sets of my XMS @ DDR533, 3-3-3-8-1T timings, and I outbenched DDR2 1000 @ 5-5-5-15. However together, I can only pull off DDR450, 2.5-3-2-5-2T....so my bandwidth got pretty limited there.
