Some Serious Upgrading

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well guys, heres what I'm planning.
I'm not going to switch over to PCI-e and AMD until possibly next year or later.
SO, I think I'll ride out on the last wave of AGP tech until the end.

So, my first upgrade would obviously be a new vid card.
I figured that the 6800GS would hold me off for now.

Next would be a new processor I suppose.
I want the best I can get for a Socket 478 board.
I was thinking either a 3.0 Pressy, or one of these things. Anyone know anything about em?

And after these major upgrades, I'm thinking of getting a Zalman HS for my new proc, perhaps a Fatal1ty for some vga cooling, and possibly a new case to hold all this stuff in.

Whatchu guys think?

EDIT: Nevermind that other proc, I just checked and it seems to be a Mobile Proc.

the technology curve is leveling off slowly

unless a breakthru in quantum or cell computing is reached, things wont get a whole lot faster, only bigger HDD space, ram etc

until water becomes the staple of cooling, then peltiers or whatever
then there will be stock OC's and whatnot
