go Q9550 rig or go i7

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I got another thread going on intel general

and i dunno people have been giving me mixed reviews ( as is always on puterland)

i dont know if its worth it to uppy to i7.

i have a e6600 with 4 bg gskill ddr2 800 rams.

i got sick and had to get a liver transplant

my cousin moved my rig and my watercool got messed up.

also my northbridge got loose and now it wont go past 340 fsb.

so im pissed.

anyway ffw i dunno any advice towards a new q9550 rig or a core i7 for black friday... looks like alot of pple are getting stuff like that

on a side note i hear that ddr2 vs ddr3 are still like neck and neck.. its rly the proc and mobo thats been makin the heavy advances.

is that wrong???

If i were you , i would upgrade the video card for now, and wait for the AMD Deneb to come out to see what happen. YOur rig is not bad, isn't it.

get a video card of your choice (ie HD4850/4870) and hold out for Deneb from AMD

though if you can get a deal on i7 such as the one going on on Tigerdirect on Friday i would do that.
