Upgade advice on my sig rig

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have about 350$ and i'll save up like 300-400 more by may. So i'll have 650-750$. I have recieved all the killer WC equipment from CD and cant wait to set it all up once my durgery rotation's over. Now, should i change my proc and mobo for something like a quad and an x48 or should i wait for nehalem? That would be a full change to ddr3, new mobo and new proc i guess. Should i do that or go for an x48/790i board, Q6600/45nm quad and ddr3 by say end of july? Also, i dont think the 8800GTX waterblock would fit on the 9 series cards right?

heck man tell you the truth that is a nice rig right there just trade out that system hog vista for xp pro and you'll be just fine for just over 100 smacks.. you could change out your cpu in a few months but that is about it that i can see...

I'd say stick with what you got and save up your money. The system you have should run all current games with no problems except maybe for crysis. The performance gain you receive by upgrading your processor and motherboard wouldn't be worth it for me.
