Upgrade that will have more impact?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Would upgrading my CPU to a AMD Phenom II x6 1090T have more of an impact than selling my GPU's to get a single GTX560 or GTX470?

-Thanks

well if you're on to gaming just grab a VGA card upgrade, everything else runs fine on 3-cores as far as gaming is your concern, else if you're into more multitasking/rendering an AMD hexa chip is the way to go..although you WOULD really need to get a beefy VGA card update soon..

The better idea is to sell off your 8800's and grab a nice single GPU solution. Games these days are more GPU dependent if anything.
