Good Time to upgrade?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! So.. I have a X2 555 running at stock.. SO... I have some cash to spend on an upgrade now... so... DO you think it's a good idea to upgrade to a 1055t or a 965? I mean there's lots of things I want to upgrade such as a case (I'm using an Antec Sonata from 2003 from my first build ) and power supply. SO? Should I upgrade my CPU? or something else? I do alot of video rendering and gaming so? (BTW, Ill post my sig rig later not now) THanks!

Wait, upgrade cooling, power and case first, then go see what your chip can do. My 555BE is doing 4GHz as a quad core, what can yours do?
