I will have about $700 to spend on my rig in about a week or so. I'm just curious what you guys would do in my situation. If I make the move to the Sandy Bridge platform, I'm looking at a 2500k, descent clocking board and some DDR3. Everything else would be carried over from my current system. I am guessing about $600, $250 for the 2500k, $250 for the board, and $100 for the RAM. My other option I have thought of is to take that money, and dump it into my 775 setup. It kind of sounds stupid upgrading an platform that's being phased out, but I could get a Q9550 with its 12MB L2, and maybe another GTX 460 for SLI, and a GTS 450 for physics. Now honestly, what would you guys do? Maybe something else entirely?
