Hey all. I am looking to upgrade my computer with a new MOBO and processor along with an eventual new graphics card. Ive been looking at the new intels

I want something that can last me a while. I want a system that can play the much higher quality games out there (Like Crysis or Bioshock)

If someone can just point me in th direction of a good MOBO and processor to start with, that would be great.

I want a system that can also run Vista (don't worry I am not going to get it any time soon haha. I just want a system that can handle it for when the time comes to get vista).

I noticed you still have a s939 system so I figure you don't have any DDR2 memory. So for about $1000 you can get yourself....

Q6600
EVGA 780i motherboard
G.Skill 4GB DDR2
Tuniq Tower
SLI 8800 GT's



If you don't want the video cards yet, I would at least get yourself the other stuff I recommended for you.

Don't forget to add 64-bit Vista to that list. :d

I have to agree with what 'wire' suggested. It is the best option.

Or else if you want a mobo & cpu only, you could wait for the newest Quad Cores that are due sometime next week *hopefully* and grab yourself an X38 mobo and some good DDR2 RAM and you would be more than fine
