I will not get into a spam war with anyone... But I will REPEAT what I wrote about saving up and getting a new system... I never mentioned anything about a high end system, but if you know anything about Moore's law http://www.intel.com/technology/mooreslaw/index.htm

You can clearly see that a dual-core CPU with DDR2 memory is becoming dated and as I clearly wrote, that his CPU and memory will become choke points in the near future...

I am only pointing out a choice, some people choose to buy a new system (it does not have to be high end but a current one) while other choose to upgrade component by component...

As someone that has been building systems since the 286 was out, I can say that in the long run if you run the numbers you get more bang for your buck if your system is more than 2 generations old and you save up and buy one generation below the latest and greatest...

As software always lags hardware, by a generation or more in the long run, if he was to save up and get a quad core CPU, a GPU that handles DX11 and DDR3 memory say in 6 months, he would in the long run save more money and get more processing power, in both CPU & GPU, wider bandwidth than spending almost $200 now and in 6-9 months than wanting to upgrade his CPU and M/B and memory, when he only needs another say $700 do have a good system…

If he plays WOW, (which is CPU intensive) how long do you really think that a dual core CPU with last before it becomes a choke point as I stated…


In the end it comes down to a matter of choice, but please do not say I am wrong, nor say I am telling him to get the latest and greatest hardware out there… I was only trying to help someone I do not know out, and being told don’t listen to him is simply showing a lack of respect for a different opinion than yours…
