Need Some Opionions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, I have a limited budget here, so I need some help on what to spend money on...

I can either, Save, Save, Save and then Save some more and get this

Q6600
EVGA 750i FTW
4GB Ballisitx - Already Own
8800GTS G92 (Another for SLI, Maybe a cheaper model)

OR

I can keep everything I currently have and buy a Q6700?

Obviously the first idea is better, but with not having much money and such, is it actually worth it. What do you think?

Thanks a lot in advance for any help!

I would wait on the video card since I somewhat doubt you need it that much and just upgrade the cpu for now. June should offer some very nice gpu's from ATI and also Nvidia should be dropin in some new ones soon after.

dude save your money for nehalem and GTX260/280. Just OC that processor of yours to the max and enjoy what you got and save up for the new tech. Put 1.40+ volts to that thing and let it run free!!!

I would buy the Q6700 now,sell your E6300 and apply that towards you mobo or keep it and save some more til the new cards are release.Even if your not impressed with the new cards most likely you'll get the 88GTS somewhat cheaper.

Yeah, That's true, So, SLI out the window

I need too much voltage and there's too much heat to go any higher, but I guess I'm happy with it for now.

So, Get the Q6700 and use it in my 965P-S3?
