Platform upgrade

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I am doing a platform upgrade to 1366 in the next week, I am currently running a P5Q PRO, 4GB DDR2 800MHz, Intel Q9550 ... I will be upgrading to a P6X58D-E, 6GB Dominator GT 2000MHZ DDR3 trip chan, Intel i7 950.

Right now i am running benchmarks on my current 775 based system so i know the increase i get...

I have been running some benchmarks on some games, F1 2010, Just Cause 2 etc (anyone know any more games that have in game benchmark modes)

But I want a "short n sweet" comprehensive list of benchmark software i can run to get my system capabilities right now on my 775 RIG, could some of you give me a good solid list (not too many) of benchmarking software, you know like the most common used by extreme websites benchmarkers etc....

Thanks all!!

If you're all about the bencmarks then sure Ci7 will do better than Q9550 but in the real life usage you will not notice much of a upgrade,only in encoding..

Games will pretty much run the same as your Q9550 @ 3.9GHz is a beast and they dont benefit from Hyper Threading..

But if you really want an upgrade then go for SandyBridge..

CHEERS..

It's only a 10-15% difference.You won't notice a difference in actual use, just synthetic benchmarks.

At your speed you will be set for a while. Up to you really. A GPU or SSD upgrade is a more efficient use of your money at this point. If you don't have an SSD... I'd start there.
