Rofl @ your HoN reference Zig-Zag

If you want to upgrade your 775 processor go for it itll cost about 200$

For a good setup itll be around 500$ for a good board/cpu/memory for a new Intel build
and about 350$ for a amd build.

Its ultimately up to you on how much you want to spend.
I plan on keeping mysetup for about 2 more years.
I spent like 70$ on the processor 80$ for the board and 40$ for the ram.
Everything else i bought new

The advantage of having a dual core when you're thinking of upgrading is: pump the volts to it to get the performance you want

If you're thinking of upgrading anyways

Look for a cheap Q6600
usually runs around 80-120$ depending on vid

I'd say go with a quad-core. Windows 7 is really good at utilizing all the cores when you're multitasking. Also, at Newegg the Q84 and E84 cost the same, so might as well go quad.
