New tech on a 939

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
whats good guys?

purchased a 9800GTX-

Now I'm contemplating my next steps for the life of my rig.

I saw that the egg had Phenom 9600s for around a bill, which sounded alright but i've been out of the loop for a minute and i'm not sure if it would be more economic to just buy an e8400 or dish out for the Q6600 i believe it is...

I'm mostly torn though between trying to put some life back into this rig by upping the memory and fixing my pesky northbridge fan... maybe getting a new HSF and beastin' my proc out again (it's at 2.2 again because i haven't been able to keep up with it)

ANOTHER THING; i'm suspicious of my rig at the moment... the northbridge fan is like, off kilter or something and it makes these horrible oscillating vibrations which caused me to lay my pc down on its side (idk why but gravity must have some effect because it seems to grate on itself less) and for a while I couldn't even play WoW due to inexplicable crashes. one bsod, but not a consistent thing.

Well i'm hoping that i can install this 9800 without a hitch and maybe get my system back up to par again

discuss!?

best thing apart from a E5200/P45 or other upgrade would be a bit of extra ram and that 9800GTX+.

the Phenom 9600 or any phenom for that matter will not work on the board you have at the moment. you need an AM2 board or AM3 board if you want to use the DDR3 ram with the new amd processors

imo it's more economic to upgrade. sad but true. get the X3 720 and build around that or a X4 940 and go around that. that will be a major upgrade.
