post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
A good 775 board with a Q9550 overclocked, with a good video card or two.

Still an ok computer?

775 don't have nice scaling for crossfire/SLI. If you prefer one card solution, it is still fine. A properly OC'ed 9550 will not bottleneck any GPU at present. But if you want a new build, there is no point to look into 775's given DDR3 are damn cheap and Sandy bridge just came out.

Of course your CPU is still fine. I don't see anything worth upgrading to until the new X68 or whatever comes out. Sandy Bridge is nice but it won't be a tremendous upgrade, nor would 1156, 1366, or AM3. If you want to see a big jump, wait a year.

Yes. 775 is still viable.

Overclocked and paired with the right VGA cards and RAM it is still a potent platform.

I've still got a Q9550@4Ghz with 4 GB ram and a GTX 260 core 216.

Runs maxed @1440x900, and it will run games strongly for several years to come.

Is the i7 faster? sure... but realistically unless you have money to throw away at an upgrade there really isnt any point. While the q9x50 chips arent new anymore, they still put out more than enough power for anything out right now. Pair it with a current gen video card, 4gb of memory and you're good to go.

Personally Im running a q9650 @ 4ghz, 4gb of ram, and I just added a gtx570. I plan to run this rig until the next cycle of new intel chips come out and then upgrade the whole machine. I have no problem maxing everything out at my current res of 1690x1050 and I have no doubts about it doing the same when I upgrade to a 1080p monitor.
