Whats my Best Upgrade Path - undecided - Page 2

post #11 of 13
looking at your system now i think it would make more sense for you to get a new cpu and a xigmatek s1283 if you dont trust your existing cooler to cool the cpu... if you go down the track to get a Q6600 + xigmatek, you have some more money to spend for a set of 2x2gb ram...

Get the Quad-core CPU. The 8800GT Runs both Crysis and Crysis Warhead on full without a hitch with a quad-core CPU (in my case a Phenom 9950), so you don't NEED the Graphics upgrade yet, even though 4850's are nice. Crysis is amazing in HD, so save up for the 24" monitor. Once you go Quad, you don't go back.
